Dealing With Employee Absenteeism
Explain the company's
absentee policy in full to all employees, and provide them with a
a special notebook that you only use to record daily employee
attendance records. Observe which employees are late, which come
early, and which are absent. Keep a record of the reasons.
If you have problem
employees, meet with them in private to discuss it, and help them
find a solution.
4) Follow up.
If the behavior occurs again, conduct another private meeting to
find out why.
5) Take corrective action.
If the employee behavior continues, start the corrective process
— verbal warning, written warning, suspension, and termination.

10 Tips To Be More Likeable At Work
Being good at what you do is obviously important, but being liked
by your coworkers, colleagues, and clients is just as important.
Without the likeability factor, people are going to be less likely
to want to work with you, which can have devastating consequences in
Jacqueline Whitmore, an internationally recognized
etiquette expert, author and founder of The Protocol School of Palm
Beach, offers these 10 tips to be more likeable at work:
1. Master the BLT factor.
In this case, BLT
stands for believability, likability and trustworthiness. Cultivate
a reputation that embodies these three key traits. When clients
decide with whom to do business, they ask themselves, "Is Joe
capable of the work and will I enjoy working with him?" Obviously
both criteria matter, but when we need help getting a job done, we
most likely choose a congenial person over a more capable but less
2. Show empathy.
struggles and triumphs of your life affect how you empathize with
others. Empathy doesn't require you to agree with someone else’s
opinion. You can politely agree to disagree, while you thoughtfully
consider his or her feelings. Respect others and try to find common
ground. A shared experience can form an instant bond.
3. Be reliable.
Entrepreneurs who are consistent
and dependable will win contracts and develop long-term professional
relationships. Your clients need to know they can count on you to
deliver the work reliably. Do your job well and people will begin to
see you as consistent and trustworthy.
4. Tell the truth.
sounds easy until you're late on a project and over-budget. When
you're faced with a choice, always choose honesty over deception.
Integrity has become a rare trait in the business world. All
relationships require honesty, but professionalism is rooted in your
personal integrity. Always use your best judgment and be transparent
with those with whom you interact.
5. Ask questions.
Show sincere curiosity in the lives of others. Ask open-ended
questions that begin with "Tell me…" Then really listen to the
answer. You'll discover more about your clients, colleagues and
friends through effective listening. Your genuine interest will earn
you the respect and appreciation of those around you.
Have an open mind.
When you judge others
harshly or gossip on a regular basis, you invite negativity into
your life. Consider the opinions of others before you reject them
based on your pre-conceived notions. Everyone is afraid of
rejection. When you show others that you're open, accepting and
kind, you'll attract more friends and opportunities.
Your body language speaks louder than your words.
Some gestures, such as crossing your arms or putting your hands in
your pockets, can make you appear withdrawn from a situation. When
you talk to someone, open up. Make consistent eye contact, smile and
8. Master the first impression.
Everyone forms immediate judgments about the people they meet. To
make a great first impression, exhibit your professionalism and
character. What you wear matters. Dress to impress by wearing
clothes that fit well and are in good condition. When you greet
someone, introduce yourself and give a firm handshake.
Share the limelight.
It's wonderful to be recognized for your
achievements and hard work. However, don't forget to thank those who
helped you along the way. Publicly recognize employees and partners
who have worked tirelessly next to you. Don't monopolize the
spotlight or try to give the impression that you’re more important.
Instead, be friendly and considerate of others and give credit where
credit is due.
10. Remember names.
There's no better way
to build a relationship with someone than to remember his name. This
simple, yet powerful gesture, makes others feel valued and respected
and can help you build a large professional network. Deliberately
practice remembering names when you meet new connections. It takes a
bit of time and effort, but remembering someone's name can make a
difference in how that person feels about you and your brand.
