Hi Anu,
Please let me your designation and experience level.
What you are asking is a vast subject. Any policy development varies from organisation to organisation and would be done in consultation with the management.
Are you looking only at absenteeism/late coming ?
You can receive help from the forum members if you can elaborate clearly on your requirement.
Regards,
Alex

Please share me some points in your knowledge so that it would be helpful for me........

Dear Anu,
The issues that you have written are little serious in nature. These issues reflect the kind of organisational culture your company has. Good to note that you wanted to bring positive change. Nevertheless, you need to have support from the leadership. Otherwise it will be much ado about nothing.
Anyway call me my mobile. I may be able to offer solution.
Thanks,
Dinesh V Divekar

Dear Anu,
The two responses that you have got clearly demonstrates that you have not given sufficient information about the organisation, your role and the problem. I am no HR expert; however, I know how to search for the information on the web. For example, I found this excellent policy on Absenteeism at Attendance and Punctuality | Policies | Human Resources | Vanderbilt University
Kindly also see Managing absence - reducing and preventing absence which may give you other ideas.
May we know what you mean by "Irresponsibility"?

Hi Anu,
Many of our senior members have given very useful input.
Have you searched Cite HR archives?
Take your requirements one at a time.
Say absenteeism.
Please see the title bar right above.
Type this word inside WHAT DO YOU NEED BOX above.
Then press research button next to it.
You will get a lot of information.
You can also refer to RELATED INFORMATION
and DOWN LOAD THREAD articles that you find
along side these columns.
This again will give you a gamut of information.
With all the information gathered and comparing the one that suits your industry the best
in every case, discuss with the experts who have offered to give you their inputs.
You will be in a better position to understand and contribute to your Company.

Dear Anu,
Since i am from same industry and having worked with this kind of employees i can understand your problem.
Basically people from this industry carry a bag of ego which in tern comes out as an arrogance.
During my early career i was also in the same situation, then slowly i started studying the behavior of both organisation and individuals.
Individuals require motivation and organisation requires certain policies for development of technical and soft skills.
I have got the required fruit for this experiment and it will certainly work.
Hope you will succeed in this experiment.

Please apply 3 days late 1 cl cut policy for late comer and for other problems you have to have strong skill with polite and firm behavior. Somnath
Hi Anu,
Do you have the biometric attendance machine or the entry register.
Biometric Machines make people punctual as you cant modify even a single second in machine, Second is yes rightly pointed out 3 Lates = Half day / Half CL.and 3 consecutive Late = 1 CL
And if you dont have large Manpower you may announce that on zero late through out month would get extra salary of Rs. 200 or keap any thing that adds value.
Talk to them daily.... make yur repo with them. arrange different activities. On any weekoff arrange a cricket match.
Do something to boost the moral. It happes only when Moral of employee is dow. ALL THE BEST!!!

Dear Anu
as fas as I know in manufacturing industry, often we need to prepare the flexible policy in such type of issues (Late coming and short leave).
make a policy which is suitable for your organization culture and discuss the management, but ensure that there should not be effect the production.
