Spring 2018 Hardlines Strategies
Even for long-time employees, making it clear what your expectations are
Bring your notes of previous incidents and lay out when, if applicable, this has directly affected the business or another employee. Emphasize the goal of developing better time management habits to curb this kind of behavior and the need for mutual respect of everyone’s time commitments. Ask for Explanation The reasons for tardiness can range far and wide, but the employee deserves the chance to explain their behavior. This keeps the meeting from being too accusatorial and gives the stage to the employee to work through behaviors or patterns that have led to this point. Listen intently and look into ways to solve problems. Explain Your Thoughts Even for long-time employees, making it clear what your expectations are for professionalism in the workplace can
help reset their mindset. Employees might put more of an emphasis on work performance or customer reactions and not see their lapses in time as a behavior that affects the whole business. Make it clear how you feel about employees being on time, and the role that punctuality plays in your company. Offer Solutions It’s good to have some go-to solutions or tips on hand to help an employee get into the office at the correct starting time. Changing home behaviors, such as anticipating delays like traffic or missed trains before they become an issue, can be helpful. If you have tricks you’ve used in the past to help you get out the door on time, tell your employee about them. This may help the employee realize this is a behavior that can be changed.
Meet With the Employee If a meeting is needed, respect an employee’s privacy and meet with them with relevant managerial staff. It’s usually better to address the issue the day of a late arrival, as an employee might resent being called in for a meeting on a day that they arrived on time. for professionalism in the workplace can help reset their mindset.
