Associate shitposting on LinkedIn
One of our associates added me on LinkedIn the other day. I naturally accepted and while bored and on the train I opted to look through his activity. Unfortunately he is extremely active in commenting on rather divisive topics, such as politics and COVID-19.
He is evidently very pro-Trump and also a COVID-19 anti-vaxxer. I can disagree with him but can't really blame him for the first point, but the second point really makes my skin crawl.
Now the question is what should I do?
- Do nothing and let him dig his own grave
- Call him into a one on one and try and offer him some advice
- Push it to HR and let them deal with it
- Torch him infront of everyone (jk)
He is a very mediocre worker so if he got canned I wouldn't really miss him, but at the same time I think most people deserve a warning before being axed and I genuinely don't like firing people.
Thoughts? What other situations have you seen staff doing stupid things on social media?
