I don't even know how to say this, so here goes. I think the VP I report to has a drinking problem. Several of the other Directors and myself notice that he comes into work smelling like booze on most days, and then he takes really long lunches with clients at nice restaurants where we know he's drinking, and then takes the team to happy hour often after work, and then drives home.
I know his personal choices are not my business, but I'm concerned about him personally and professionally (especially because he drives to and from work, and he's engaging with clients under the influence).
Logistically, there are no rules in our code of conduct that discuss alcohol consumption at work, so it's not like technically he's breaking any rules at the company. (Driving under the influence is another story). I don't know him well, and I'm not his boss. None of us on the leadership team want to bring this up to him, and all of my male counterparts have told me just to mind my own business and keep my mouth shut.
As a leader in this division and this company, I need to think about what's best for the company and the safety of our employees, and I have NO IDEA how to address this, or if I should at all. Thoughts?
