My company has (repeatedly) requested that I ask my family members to trial their service.
I would rather keep family and work separate, and so I told them my family wasn't interested.
However, I keep getting asked if family would like to trial the service, and have been met with disappointed looks when I've said 'no'.
Is this likely to hold me back?
- No offer to pay participants has been made;
- It's unlikely it'd bring any value to their lives;
- It is other (more senior) team members who have been asking;
- Anyone taking part in the service has to sign up for it, so the company would know if they did (or did not) sign up.
- it's always free - I'd rather not go into details, but they would definitely notice the service being there. It requires some participation on their side. This is why I don't want to inconvenience them.
- My concern is that, given the repeated requests I've received, they will see me as "letting them down"
