hello sir ,
i need ur help regarding showing employee. I have a problem total employee=150 in which actually present employee is 70 & 80 employees showing absent for long time. what can i do , i don't know seriously , so pls help me

Hi Pooja, If those 70-80 employees were absent from a long time then have you absconded those employee? Did you send absconding letters to them ?
hello sir, My hr not send absconding letter to that employee.what can i do.
Hello Pooja Behal,
Can you pl give the COMPLETE & FULL details, so that the members can give the MOST appropriate & accurate suggestions?
A few gaps that need filling-up:
1] What is the sector your company is in--manufacturing, services, telecom........, etc?
2] What do you mean by '....showing absent for long time...'? "long time" can mean anything depending on WHO decides the meaning.
3] Was this issue discussed with the employees concerned? If Yes, what were the results or reason(s) given by each of them? If No, why not?
4] What is YOUR locus-standi/position in the whole matter?
5] What has been done SO FAR about this issue by the Company's management? IF NOTHING, why not?
There's a Quote: "If you want the Right Answer(s), you have to ask the Right Question(s)"--hope you got the point.

Dear Pooja, In addition to what Satheesh asked you, please share are these same people who remain absent consistently or different batch of people choosing to mass bunk at different point of time ?
Hi Pooja,
If you found 50% of your employees are not coming to work properly, I would say it is a big and serious problem which demands serious and immediate action.
Now in addition to the questions asked by our respected seniors above, I also would like to know about you, your role/designation and strength of your HR department.

Greetings Pooja,

In addition to the responses given by members, I wish to seek the following information from you

a) Does your company carryout a manpower planning exercise. If they have done such an exercise, then it was possible to identify the actual requirement and recruit/ retain people appropriately.

b) If it is an IT industry there is a possibility that a percentage of employees are always kept as a reserve on the bench with a view to assign them to new projects as and when they are finalised.

c) Your company needs to do an attrition analysis if the retention rate is so poor. The reasons as to why employees abscond from work has to be ascertained. Is it because of poor salary, improper working conditions, extended work hours without equivalent compensation, geographical location, or any other conditions that leads to their quitting employment.

d) Does your company conduct an exit interview process? (Applicable only if employees submit a formal resignation)

So only if you enlighten us on such aspects, we will be able to respond to you suitably..
