You miss 100% of the shots you don't take."

- Wayne Gretzky

Your employees miss a lot of shots when they don't show up!!

Every company has employees who are chronically absent.

People Profits Principle #92

As wages are increased by a $1/hour the character
 of the person applying increases exponentially

People Profits has found the employee(s) who: 

  1. Are CHRONICALLY ABSENT are also
  2. UNDER PRODUCTIVE when they are present

Does this group look like this to you?

Do you think they will ever change?

The results are VERY COSTLY:

  2. Time spent MANAGING and WORKING AROUND absent worker(s)
  3. Loss of SPECIFIC SKILLS which may delay work and final results
  4. Loss of ENGAGEMENT and MORALE due to chronic problems
  5. Perceived LACK OF CONTROL by management 

5 of the many STRATEGIES to increase attendance, productivity and ROI:

  1. Quit WASTING TIME AND MONEY on chronic problems
  2. Determine SKILLS to be CROSS TRAINED before they are cut loose
  3. 3 workers making $12/hour versus 4 workers making $10/hour?
    1. LESS money, HIGHER level of productivity - it has been done.
  4. DEMAND MORE - concurrently with the above
    1. Inject a GENERAL INCREASE in the productivity STANDARD
  5. Take the time to LISTEN to your productive workers - they have IDEAS

The real issue is change - are you ready to make it better?

People Profits case study: A manufacturing/service company had a compensation policy of pay the least amount possible - don't give raises until the employee is walking out the door. Than offer less then they are really worth. We replaced with a compensation policy and procedure based on employee value and subsequent increases in value. The result was fewer employees, making more money and dramatically higher productivity rate. Employee engagement and retention soared - the ROI was out of sight!!
