Lateness policy

Regular lateness is at best an irritation. At worst it’s a symptom of a serious problem that could affect your business performance and profits.

Don’t lose any more sleep over it

Whether you’ve a problem with one employee or your business culture, we’re here to help. Our common sense approach tackles lateness at source. We’ll help you to find out if your employees are late because they’re demotivated, having personal difficulties or are simply oversleeping. We’ll offer practical solutions to help you deal with these issues, but we’ll also help you to put in place the right procedures, so lateness doesn’t affect your bottom line.

We’ll get it sorted

We’ll give you access to Atlas’s online tool that allows you to track lateness – making it easier for you to analyse patterns for individuals, departments or for the company as a whole. We’ll help you with communication and engagement strategies, and to handle tricky conversations with demotivated staff. We’ll offer pragmatic solutions so you can try and re-engage them, but we’ll also ensure they are clear about the consequences if their timekeeping doesn’t improve.

If all that doesn’t work and you need to get into disciplinary procedures, you’ll have the full support of our qualified employment law specialists – they’re just a phone call away, 24 hours a day.

Talk to us and make lateness a thing of the past.
