After reading everyone’s horror stories about crazy punishments for getting sick, I’m really interested in hearing from the people who create and/or enforce these rules. I know you must be out there.
Does it really decrease absenteeism? Does your turnover increase? What is the reasoning behind it? Was it HR’s idea, or the CEOs or Finance? Have you calculated the costs associated with this policy?
I’m really interested. Honest. I’m pretty sure the people who comment aren’t all just making up stories, so there must be HR out there who enforces these things. Tell me how it’s going.
