My group hired a new fella. Usually I'm involved in the hiring process but not in this case. We made a poor choice and hired someone who is noisy and disruptive via various bodily sounds. Snorting, gagging, sniffling, clearing throat. Constantly.
The entire cubicle area has brought this to our attention in addition to our own team members mentioning it.
To make matters potentially worse, he's going to be here a few weeks before being placed at a client. Projecting a terrible image of our group and company.
As a Sr. member of the team (not a manager) what should my approach to handling the situation be?
I need to help create a productive work environment and preserve the image of our group and company...and I can't snipe at our hiring process but I want to make sure I'm involved in it in each case. I cannot be left out because I happen to not be available at the scheduled time of interview.
