I am a neurodivergent loner who was obsessed with being the best at my job at my ex employer,I didnt care much about mingling and socializing but it was always nice to be invited to lunchdates or casual chats every now and then.I started noticing a shift in attitude towards me in 2021 when we started transitioning back to office .I was being excluded blatantly not only from "mingling" but training and development opportunities as well.But me being me I was focussed on being the best at my job and I made it look effortless.This was not good enough though as my role was made redundant in Dec22 when I was retrenched.Having overlooked all the red flags in the previous years ,the gossiping ,the mocking ,the exclusion and then finally being retrenched I realized there was more to this whole eloborate facade .Peoples toxic behaviour started coming out.The fact that I did not LOOK like someone that was going through a retrenchement really bothered the people that made the decision to let me go but I guess it inspired the rest of my colleagues to look for greener pastures because they realized there was no way they would be able to glow through adversity(im assuming)FFWD....3months I am nicely settled in my new amazing job ,I am valued ,I am appreciated,I am growing I get a scathing email from my ex employer threatening me with legal action because apparently I enticed an entire group of free thinking adults to look for greener pastures.I never knew they thought i had that much influence and as much as I would like to take credit for everyones success i played no role in them securing amazing new jobs .I guess they saw all the red flags and decided to leave ...but can you just imagine being treated like nothing for years and being let go and then blamed for all the people that left ...crazy !
