Even I face the same problem with my employees but honestly have never come across an innovative idea to control it.
But after reading your post, it has motivated me to think of some. I will definately share any idea that comes to me, in the meanwhile it would be great if others also share their view points on the same.

S.SUDHEER REDDYDear friend,
I would like to share my exp.as under.
We have also experienced this problem and we have devoloped a measure to bring it down succeeded to a large extent but not 100%.
1.We have introduced a cash award(Rs125/) scheme along with appr.letter for the workmen those who do not have any LOP's during that year and this is being given to them on the eve of 26th Jan every year.
2.It has yeilded results.Then we have introduced 3 year cash award(Rs300/-) per workmen those who do not put in LOP during the 3 years.
The strength is increasing as well.
3.We have got a clause in wage agreement for attendance bonus per month.i.e.,those who do not have any LOP duding the month he gets this.
4.Last year we found a guy who has not availed any cl,el,sl,during the past three years,we have given good silver article on the ewve of 26th Jan.and we have displayed his name and awarded photo in gallery and he was quite delighted.
5.Lastly,we have conducted a trg pro on consequences of absenteeism for those who absent etc., and we also adopt various counselling measures to him and his family members,with the help of union.
Thanks for your response.I 'm glad that my post has induced think of new ideas. I once thank you for the time u spent in responding my query.
That was really an good idea. Consutructive mechanism to control absenteeism. The noteable point in ur idea is that the employee is appreciated in front of other fellow employees. You pretty well included both monetary & non-monetary award to motivate ur employees. Kudos.Keepgoing.
Thanks & Regards,

I know some companies (especially the companies who deals with the endusers) they provide 5 points to the employees for their attendance n punctuality .The total points earned by individual employee will be calculated at the year end, an attractive tour package (similar to that of LTA) will be provided for the high scoring employee + 2 dependents. They successfully reduced the absenteeism rate.

suresh ramarathnamI agree with sudheer .. I think unless you have a wage /leave relationship the problem will be never ending. It is the pinch in the pocket which can make amendments

pratibharathiI would like to share one idea that accidentally worked out to be positive. We had to alter our office timings as we had to stop giving off on saturdays. We altered it from 8:30 to 8 am and surprisingly it changed the habit of few people who were regularly irregular means were coming late till 9 am actually started coming at 8 am or before. Now we have changed the time again from 8 to 8:30 and now habit of late coming is changed with those who were chronic latecomers.
I believe it all lies in commitment and becomes the habit if gets unnoticed for certain period or due to some other reasons. HR should take a call and make them aware about the benefits of early rising from a bed and coming on time. People should respect their time and other's too.
Thanks & Regards

svsranaCOPC has certain suggestions for the same
a) coming late or leaving early is not an offence, it is only unscheduled leaves which affect the bottomline.
ie let people take a short leave rather than forcing them to come up with excuses n staying away from work.
imagine you are the sincere employee, you will do your best in balancing manage work/timelines and yet shoulder personal obligations too.
very efw cases that people will take advantage
b) hv an attendance allowance
c) if the immediate senior visits the sick employee even in 1 out of 10 incidents then cooking reasons for leave will reduce
d) make this a toll gate for appraisal ie if you take x nos of unsched leaves in a quarter then not applicable for incentives/ increment etc
e) make counselling mandatory if unsched leaves exceed a certain nos in a quarter/ use it as a positive tool.
lastly absences could be a indicator for employee dissatisfaction with his work role or immediate senior or cos polices etc ie attrition indicator
