The Absent Employee: Does The Heart Grow Fonder?

If you are an employer, the absent employee can throw a huge monkey wrench into the machinery of an operation. No matter what day of the week. A “no show” can be a “no go” for many employers.

As a business owner of a healthcare executive search firm, I can state first hand that very few things about my business infuriates me more than employee absenteeism.

“Who’s on First?”

Who is right? Does it even matter?

What does matter is the misunderstanding. The lack of clear concise communication. Maybe confirmation prior to the meeting could have prevented this mishap. Prior confirmation can be critically important to prevent potential miscommunication.

Employee Retention? A Death Trap.

Have you ever considered that employee retention just might be a death trap to the growth of your business? Are you holding on to people that should have been terminated long ago? Business, just like life changes every day and hopefully your goal is to grow your business. Things change.

In Defense of Micro-Managing

Micro-managing is a vital part of an employer’s job. An employee’s work environment is not a popularity contest. It’s about successfully fulfilling the ongoing tasks at hand in the way in which you as the employer sees fit.

Some people work better if they are micro-managed and are held accountable all day long. Other’s do not need as much hand holding but nonetheless, micro-managing assures you that a job is getting done the way that you want it done.
