Dear all, What to do when employees are not coming in alloted Shifts.???? Need to Work On it .dear all HR guys plz help me to resolve this issue.... Regards, Rashmi
From India, Jalgaon
Dear Rashmi,
Please give more details about the scenario; it will help our experts to grasp the situation and give you precise guidance rather than just general ideas.
For example, how large is the organization and what do you mean by "They do not come in allotted shifts"? Does 'A' turn up to work instead of 'B' or do you have a person short on a shift?
What is your role at work?

Dear Rashmi,

Please try to find out the reasons why the employees are not coming in alloted shifts.Do share the same with us so that we can suggest you accordingly.

Alternatively you can prepare a format for Intimation of change in Shift Duty whereby the concerned employee, head of the department will sign the same and handover it in advance to HR Department, also a copy to be handed over to security gate for their information.Unless authorised by Head of department in this format and without intimation in this regard in the format dont allow the employees to change their shifts.Please communicate to all concerned departments that without intimation in the said format change in shift duty will not be considered. Please communicate the same to all heads and the top management also.Please also prepare a policy and procedure for change in shifts and get the same sanctioned by top management. Involve all concerned department members, departmental heads and seek their approval also.

You may also prepare a report reflecting the number of shifts changed by employees alongwith employee names in a particular month and send the same to the departmental head. Conduct meetings with the departmental members and heads to ascertain their issues so as to reslove the same.

Hope this helps.

You shall always take the consideration time period for adjustment, if you think you have already given enough time for employees to adjust then have a meeting and request them to follow or ask them the suggestions if they want change in a way not affecting the company requirements.....

Madam rashmi ji,
further to this to curtail such practice not to attend in allotted shifted, donot allow sych employee in other shifts and mark absent or mark uab (un authorised absent) with prior communication which ever is possible.

Dear Rashmi,
You have stated that change of shift is notified but no one is ready to follow. No one includes the person who issued the changes, the management, the bosses. That exactly is the problem. Hence try to see the hidden agenda behind the action of the bosses.
