Keeping track

In a small business, is it really that important to keep track of every absence, every hour that someone spends out of the office?

I would argue that especially in this new paradigm, the answer is no.

In fact, I don’t really want to know if you have a dentist appoint or if you will be in late.  All I want to know is that you are getting the job done and EXCEEDING expectations.

I say exceeding because that’s what it takes to run a successful business.  Meeting expectations will only keep you in business for a little while.  And when your business fails and everyone is out of a job, I’m pretty sure you’re not going to hold on to those time off requests.
