The hard part of managing people is managing people. Their attitudes, their needs, their personal lives affecting their work is just too much for someone to supervise.
For months now, I really wanted to suspend employees under me due to tardiness and attendance infractions. I have been tolerating their deeds for the last three months knowing that they will improve the following month. To no avail.
Starting this week, I have to mete out suspension memo to employees who have incurred absences and tardiness more than enough to cover by our official Handbook. It is sad and I know that they will hate me for doing this but I have to do what I am expected to do. In fact, this is already long overdue.
Good riddance. Meanwhile, I hope that I can convey the message clearly–that I am doing this because they committed an error, nothing more nothing less.
