It’s difficult to always be punctual. Not all of us got the perfect attendance award in school, and it’s easy to run late because of traffic, a broken alarm, family issues, or any number of factors in the morning when heading to work. Some people are fit for mornings, and others for night—there’s likely no changing those preferences. But it is possible to accommodate for them, and there are ways to increase punctuality and encourage employees to get to work on time. At Genet Property Group, we understand the struggles of punctuality and rushing to clock into work. Here are a few tips for boosting punctuality at the office.
Used to strict start times? Consider implementing a flexible start time system. Give employees a window of time to get to work — instead of from 8 to 5 the workday can be 9 to 6 some days, 7 to 4 others. This not only gives employees control over their schedules, it also makes people feel trusted and encouraged to work at their own pace.
Offer rewards for punctuality—give the most punctual workers a special treat, or a bonus, for their dedication to the company.
Give employees a certain number of late-days per month. This lets workers know that the company understand that everyone is human and can’t be punctual all of the time. It also lowers pressure and tension within the office.
