I've had a coworker in the past who was constantly sitting with HR and with the director of the company (mind you this was a 100 people company so not very big), in their offices.
There was not much to actually discuss as it was the first months on the job, and we were both hired with a similar JD, and we were the two person hired on a new team that was being built.
So I am wondering how to approach them, or how to approach HR/director about this kind of thing.
My personal thought is "what does this person have to discuss so much with HR/director, instead of actually sitting down and doing their job?"
Also given that I was teamlead on that team, what could I have done regarding this?
My natural feeling was that this coworker was that they were gossiping about me. Then again, how could HR/director have been so tolerant of him going in their office and constantly having to hear said gossip.
So I wonder if HR is ok with someone regularly and constantly coming into their office and gossiping.
How should one approach this kind of situation?
