Re: “The Works closes and re-opens UPDATED x 2

I'm a current employee of the Works and I've witnessed firsthand the downward spiral the company has been on since the new owners took over. I'm not at all surprised that the Halifax location didn't survive, given the corporate climate that's taken hold of the organization. The brand is being poorly managed and badly exploited instead of being grown slowly and sustainably as it had been until the switch in ownership. Selling franchises for quick cash to placate investors seems to be the order of the day, while proper planning, forethought and support has clearly fallen by the wayside. Many of the upper management folks whose hard work and years of experience helped make the Works into a brand worth buying have jumped ship, mostly out of frustration with the current people at the helm.

I hope that ownership at some point realizes that their current practices are killing the company and take firm, positive steps to right the ship for the sake of what the Works used to be. Otherwise, the Halifax closure is just a harbinger of things to come for the rest of us.
