I’m the HR Manager for my company, and we’ve had this new engineer with us just over three months now, and he’s really good at his job. He was specifically head hunted for the role, and his first performance meeting was great; ticks every box. Now he’s arranged a meeting with me this week regarding some social “anxiousness” that he says is affecting his motivation. I talked with his line manager and after some prodding he revealed that apparently some of this engineer’s co-workers have brought up “personal matters” related to his cultural habits at habits at work e.g. the food he eats, his religious beliefs, social topics he discussed, apparently somewhat even brought up his accent. Any tips on how I go about this meeting with him?
