There is no hard and fast rule that Srs. shouldn't mark their attendance. I didn't mention what practice in vogue in your office. Is't signing in the attendance register kept at the entry or at the desk of office/reception or bio-metric or magnetic card. Much would depend on this systems. I'm not advocating the fact that they shouln't mark just because they are seniors. But you should also appreciate the fact that most of the seniors does't go strictly by the clock. They are supposed to work 24x31x365 unlike their subordinates. Middle/junior level staff can afford to work 9-5 routine whereas SM can't do that because they are responsible for all the requirements without limitations to office timings. They are meetings-within and outside, calls to attend, answer to customers & officials of various agencies, achieve targets and rectify pitfalls and so on. So I don't suggest you to take them to task for not signing the attendance. At the same time if they won't enforce discipline within among their subordinates, they are only held responsible for the do's and don'ts.

You personally talk to your Sr. Management and explain them that It will be difficult for you to keep their leave records and process their salaries without proper attendance record. If you are still managing the manual attendance you can send the attendance to their desk through some office assistant to get it signed. So gradually you can develop the signing habit in them. Regarding the punctuality as Mr. Kumar has suggested it will be difficult to get them on track since they work for the late hours.

Biometric attendance system placed at entrance will help solve the problem.But seniors need to set examples first.
No doubt they may need to work late hours etc, but basic attendance requirements is unavoidable as record for payments.Seek their cooperation and assistance in making the system work.

Depending on markings by security persons at the entry, in my opinion, is not a healthy practice due to following reasons-
1) Security's primary duty is to regulate entry & exit of employees as well as others 24 x 7. It's possible they could miss to take note of in/out movement of personnel when they have to concentrate on other aspects like movement of goods thru' the gate etc.
2) They are not going to be informed on a given day who will be on duty, who are on leave or on duty outside and so on.
3) It's possible for fraudulent marking if they collude with employees.
4) This arrangement may not work where large man power is involved.

But people like us are always there to find out the way out.
Ask top management to give exemption or support to advise everybody for punching.
With this your top mgmt will also come to know your problem and definitely decide to give exemption till certain levels. on which you can comment to other employee to reach that level and enjoy the benefit.

If problem is not solved, public the attendance graph dept wise on noticeboard. senior managers will start take care of it to avoid their dept being exposed publicly.

I would like to suggest here the speak with the higher authority i.e. hod , directors etc... and convey them there is lack of system and policies internet the company which may having loss to the company in terms of the excess salaries paying because of no proper attendance record. Thereafter take a permission from them to prepare attendance & leaves policy and apply it through them only.
This will help the control to seniors at some extend then slowly you can take charge of payroll process which route the higher authority

If you are in a Sr.cadre and could have direct access to Top management like HR-Head, Directors etc. you should discuss with them raising these issues and seek their guidance. If you do anything on your own it might harm you. Without any consent of your superiors don't try to take forward sensitive issues on your own.
