Respond to absenteeism with a little honey

It’s tempting to get angry with an employee who starts to miss work without a good excuse. But if that person is a valuable worker, first try to bond rather than come down too hard, too soon. Here’s how: Most absent employees figure you won’t call them at home, and almost none would expect you to call for friendly advice. So the next time employees go AWOL, call them at home and say, “You’re good at this. Can you help me with something?” They’ll be shocked you didn’t call to berate them or to pry but simply to seek their input. And they may no longer miss as much work if you make them feel important. Of course, if you don’t see an improvement in their attendance after making a few of these calls, stronger discipline is in order.
