Has there ever been a time where you witnessed a fellow employee find money on the ground and kept it for themselves rather than turning it in to lost and found or human resource? If so, please explain how you would approach the employee and ask them about the money.
I stated an example of to many absences. Communicate with the employee and find out what's going on and if different days or hours would help correct their attendance problem before just simply recommending to management to think about terminating employment.
I don't like to hear that something can't be done. Parameters may have to change and their may be a less than desirable outcome, but there is always something that can be done to better a hard situation.
That I hired excellent people and built Teams for the long run by providing clarity, training, and regular communications through one on ones with my direct reports. Also created a work environment that was diverse, and had a culture of respect for the business and fellow employees. In essence,hire the right people, maintain an atmosphere they will thrive in, promote from within, and constantly develop and train them.
