    Where I work, we seem to have lots of issues with tardiness, absence and god knows what else. There is always something ridiculous happening; arguments, name-calling, etc.

    Is there any way we can encourage good attendance at work? How can we achieve this at our workplace and motivate employees to show up for work?

    Work attendance can be a serious problem. It takes just one bad apple to ruin it for others. In order to achieve good attendance at work, everyone needs to play their part, including the boss.

    You see, sometimes things like lateness or constant absences are not dealt with properly or severely enough. Like I said, one or two people will be like this. If they get away with it, then they will do it again and again.

    I once worked in a place where there were full time employees and part time ones. There was one particular girl who only worked once a week. Guess what? Many times, she was a no show! Can you imagine?

    We would be making fun by saying she only had one shift and never showed up for it. When you have employees like that, it places a burden on others. Your boss (or you) have to come down hard and make an example of them. If they keep getting away with it, they will keep doing it.

    You really need to have a good attendance in order to have a good standing with your employer. Some people may think it funny or “cool” to be the bad boy, but this may have repercussions later on for them.

    I can totally see how a lot of trouble can be created by this. Lateness or absence puts a burden on others, including the boss as well.

    I worked in a place where I saw more than one employee write in their start time with a pen, even though there is a punch clock.

    These people should not have been paid for that period, yet they were. Meanwhile, others like me who were on time didn’t enjoy such ‘perks’.

    OK, once in a while, stuff happens. Transport problems, family emergencies, etc. But come on, if it is always the same people, then something is fishy, correct? They come in with smirks on their faces and you know they are just full of it.

    What a company needs to do is implement a technology system where this nonsense can be eliminated. A couple of years back, I had a 6-month contract position and the company used software from a company called Synerion to track time and attendance and all that. There was never a problem. Everything was accurate and accounted for. Attendance problems were fixed quickly and efficiently.
