I am working as HR in Software Company with 15 employees .There is lot of absentism in our company.Apart from salary deduction it seems that it does not make difference to them.Because of such absentism our projects are getting affected very badly.We are working only for international clients.
Please give me solution for this,mail me at

Employee's absentism in your Org may be because of various reasons. You need to do a through analysis of what is actully going wrong. Absentism is only the symptom, not a problem in itself. You being an HR peron have to identify the root cause.
You can start with, doing a employee survey, skip level meetings with team members, meeting with concerned managers/project lead and then corelate various matrics to conclude it.
Again, I want to say this, HR perosn alone can not implement a syatem in place, this needs top management and concenred dept head co -operation. Since managing Human resource in not only HR Professional onus but its ever indidual concerned person responsibility.

Other then Manavsi , I would suggest that you should make a time evaluation sheet as we have in our office...Where in you need to mention all the project you have worked and no of hours you have spent on that particular project....We are also US based company and work for international Clients only.....

As far as the deduction goes you may deduct the more ...as in let's say that employee has taken a day off without informing then may deduct salary then If person come 2 days late in the morning then you may deduct half day salary (Like: Our Office starts at 9 Am and if 2 days in a week we come after 9.15 am then our half day gets deducted in terms of salary no matter we have paid leaves in our A/C and also if we leave before 3.30 Pm in the evening then again half day)..other then that bonus...Appraisals..It will surely effect on present scenario....

We maintain track of every hour of every employee.....Then 5 days working then do give compensatory leave if not that then give OT,Food,Cab Facilities if working time limit exceeds......

Hope that by doing this things will certainly change....We have opted this and it results good....

i agree with manavsi and shweta.......but incase these fundas does not work out then you have only 1 choice....and that is issuing a letter saying that you have been going on a unzuthorized leave and there strict disciplinary action will be taken....
make sure you do not mention the disciplinary action.....
i hope this step will ensure the reduction of absenteeism in your company....
but also make sure that this step is taken as a lst resource when you dont have any other option left....
enclosed am attaching a draft of the letter for unauthorized leave....

I think you need to look in to the reason behind absetisam
Some of the Employees may have valid reasons
The best way to handle this indiscipline is, by getting a ex armed forces person to control

Great inputs, apart from that I would suggest to discuss with them in a friendly manner to indentify their probes and suggest them the right solutions.
Try to maintain good employee relation in order to make challenging & healthy work environment.

Dear Kala,
I think, checking the Employee Relations at office, work culture, Environment plays vital roles in COMMITMENT OF EMPLOYEES.
A passonated Employee will naturally turns into Work holic(irrespective of quantity of time ,they work sincerely with quality of time) becoz they dont require pushing or pressure from top, but they love their work and gives excellent output and same for opposite case.
So, check Employee Relations at office, work culture, Environment .
