How do organizations overcome employee absenteeism and tardiness?

Employee absenteeism and sluggishness should rate as one of the biggest issues affecting every organization. Right from the smallest of organizations to the federal government employment, policies are abused at every level. When policies are abused, there is a major dip in productivity, which, when carried over to time critical projects and plans, adversely affects the bottom line.

This is not to suggest that this is the end of the road for efficiency. There is hope and there are methods to end these despairs that just any manager could be prone to facing. A few methods that help organizations overcome the laxity of employee absenteeism and lethargy do exist.
