When managers ignore poor schedule adherence, employees know they’re in an undisciplined work environment. Managers with the tools to enforce time and attendance policies can hold employees accountable for their attendance record.  

A well-structured and disciplined workplace ensures that tasks are completed on time, which enhances operations. When employees follow their schedules diligently, they contribute to a more predictable workflow. Managers can use this predictability to reduce disruptions and improve forecasting, allowing them to allocate resources better. 

Raise Employee Satisfaction 

Employees want to understand what management requires of them. Clear time and attendance policies communicate achievable expectations.  

The policies, and software tools that enforce them, should provide guidelines for addressing common situations, such as how to:

Employees who are happy with their schedule and see managers following company policy are more satisfied with their work experience. Happier employees lead to greater retention and improved productivity.
