HR Managing Lateness

Re posted from HR Singapore
..

Dear HR Members,We have actually come up with a grace period of 10 minutes daily for lateness. Any staff who are late after the grace period will have to apply for time-off.

However, it seems that about 80% of the staff still come in late everyday.

Would appreciate if you could share with me how to go about implementing policy since the above mentioned is not working.

Thanks in advance.

My reply:

HR can come up with any policy, but it takes all department heads to oblige and cooperate – subordinates who are late often should be disciplined. If there is no corporation, HR should bring the matter to the top Management. Pressure from top down always work (usually). Of course, HR must set a good example themselves. I have a lot of HR Colleagues who are frequent late comers themselves – that doesn’t help.
