Question and Answer – Team Members Calling In Sick
We’ve got a fun topic for today’s show: How do you handle employees who keep calling in sick?
This listener question came to us from Bill who is a manager of about 15 folks.
Here’s his situation: “…about every 2 weeks an employee is consistently calling out sick, at what point do I say “that’s it, I’ve had enough”?
GOOD QUESTION BILL!
(fyi…we’re sending you a free DISC personality test for sending in your question)
Now you should know that with employees calling in sick I’m more concerned about the person than I am the business. I want to discover how I can help that person. What’s going on in their life? What’s really causing all the absence?
But…if I sense that an employee is abusing their sick day then I must act to protect my companies culture.[/social]
Today’s show is sure to be a doozy!
