In a perfect workplace, employee absences would always be scheduled well in advance. But you know the drill … Carl calls out with no notice regularly, Hannah has headaches every other Monday and Clyde claims family “emergencies” way too often. Excused absences are one thing, but when they’re unplanned or excessive, they can negatively impact your productivity and profits.
