AnonymousDear HR's, Due to some financial crisis we haven't given salaries for last couple of months, due to which employees started to get demotivated, not regular to office, too many leaves and too many late logins. May i know how to motivate staff and make sure they are punctual.

nathraoFirst It is a sad situation and leadership of highest nature requires to be shown to lead employees.
What I would suggest is top leadership need to sit across with employees and openly discuss the problems being faced by the company.
The top leadership also should not draw salaries during this period.They should draw their salaries only after the last employee is paid.
Role of HR is difficult in such cases and at lower level can do nothing much to alleviate employee worries.
The actions and attitude of top bosses only can make a difference.
Little bit of late coming and disinterest should be overlooked.If you dont get pay and dont know when the pay is going to be paid,it is normal to loose interest,look around for other jobs etc.
Ask or suggest to your HR boss and motivate your CEO/MD/chairman to come out and interact.

Salaries are to be paid on time as per statutory laws.
Obviously when salaries are not paid for couple of months employees will be irregular to office and the morale of employees will go down drastically. Even if you are not able to pay full salary, you should ensure that some partial salary is released to all employees. In Indian scenario the middle class segment fully depend salary for their monthly expenses. Unlike foreign countries the habit of savings for retirement is not there in India expect statutory deductions like PF which will not be sufficient enough.
Please discuss with your Management about the payment of salaries, arrive some early date... call all employees for a meeting.... ensure some body from Top Management assure them about the payment of salaries, explain future of the company in terms of projects /work orders. Else employees will look for a new job and will leave.
