  1. A coworker reached out to me in confidence to say that another coworker, is leaving in a few months,.  That second co-worker then told me that the first one is also looking to leave and has been interviewing.  A funny as this may seem, what do I do in regards to telling HR and or management as I’m afraid that their workloads may be dumped on me.  
  2. I work at a non profit as a developer and really like my job. I also like a bunch of my co-workers. That being said,.. there is too much drama (IMO) in our company and it drives me bonkers.  I even created a non-company slack workspace so that I can communicate with some other co-workers that are on the same page with me.  What are some options to squash the rumor/drama mongers at a company?
