Dear Freinds,

Offlate, there is been interesting round of discussions going on Late Coming policy. Different organisationa have different policies to tackle late coming...but I was just wondering whether should be really bothered by late coming...e.g. In my organisation, no body would ask me whether I come late or early and when do I long as I complete my assignment and the task allocated to me...I am free to choose flexi workings.

Please share with me your experience in this we really need a disciplined timiings or flexi working schedules?

Dear Mehul & Members,

Several companies are allowing their employees the freedom to set their own work timings to suit their job and personal requirements. The culture of flexi hours is spreading in various sectors, though having initiated primarily in the customer service sector. The company also lends the flexi-time working schedule to employees to synchronize with the availaibility with the clients or specific tasks as such. Flexi-time work culture actually enhances self development alongwith workplace productivity since the employees optimize and maximize their thorough output with exceeding desired results.

But since everything has its pros and cons, flexi-work timings shall be difficult to implement in the organization as a whole since for the management to keep a tab with the field workers would be an umpteen task. So, i guess it works well if only restricted to few senior executive cadre employees who don't seem to be affected by the normal/routine day activities but need focus to concentrate on better idea conceptualizations and their implementation.

More views from the members here shall be appreciated..

Both flexi timings and fixed timings have its own advantages and disadvantages. Achieving results within the deadlines is a MUST; this being the case, flexi or fixed, so long as the results are met it is fine, is one side of the argument. It is preferable that people work with fixed timings as they can be monitored and guided is another argument.

My take - Make people accountable for results and with strict deadlines; fix working hours (say 9 AM to 6 PM or 10 AM to 5 PM); create policies and processes where they can take off for about an hour a week etc. It certainly is a lot easier to work with people when you know for sure the time a person WILL come to work. With every one today working with deadlines, it then becomes relatively easier to plan one's day.

Dear mehulsir,

I agree with you that flexi work culture is now a days is more convivent to this age group. But personily i beleive if we can't control late coming it will became habit to all the employees from sr. to junior level. If we come all together somebody can became a role model for others also. Also inter department co-ordination and linkages in terms of work will be maintain if we maintain time.
