Communicate All Absences and Tardiness
When a situation requires you to call off work or run late, communication is key. Reach out to Patriot Personnel as early as possible to inform us of the situation. Our company requires a four-hour minimum for absences, and our phones are covered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for our employees to report any absence or tardiness. Be clear and concise in your message and provide relevant details about the reason for your absence or tardiness. Reflect your professionalism and respect for your assignment by being considerate and taking the initiative to communicate promptly.
Follow Company Policy
Familiarize yourself with Patriot Personnel’s attendance policy. Every applicant is given a copy of the policy upon hire, and it is reiterated with each new assignment. Adhere to it diligently and put your best self forward by ensuring you follow the proper procedure for reporting absences or tardiness.
Plan Ahead and Be Proactive
Sometimes unexpected circumstances happen, but there are times when you can perceive potential absences with your schedule. Plan ahead whenever possible, especially if there are personal commitments or external factors that will affect your attendance. Notify Patriot Personnel of your appointments or personal commitments as soon as you are aware of them.
While unexpected absences and tardiness can happen to anyone at any time, how employees handle each situation helps maintain a harmonious work environment. As employees, clear communication, adhering to Patriot Personnel’s policies, planning ahead, and maintaining professionalism are essential steps to mitigate the impact of an absence on your assignment. A considerate and professional approach during such situations not only reflects well on you as an individual but also contributes to a positive and supportive workplace environment.
