    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will get more productivity from your employees if you didn't make them choose between the business and the family. Employees would have less of an issue working 60+ hours a week if they were allowed to leave to attend little Johnny's play at school during the day, or go to the doctor without fear of repercussions. Employees do not feel valued by management or respected yet are expected to respect management. Management do not follow their own value statements.
