According to the Tennessee Technology Center at Hartsville, attendance is among the 10 employee work ethics most valued by employers. Employees who show up for work on time, more often than not and give proper notice of absences or tardiness are practicing good attendance. Attendance as a work ethic includes sticking to work schedules, being ready to start work on time, remaining on the job during the workday to complete duties and limited use of leave. Attendance can be quantified and verified, and employers keep employee attendance and leave records. When employers check references, they may ask about attendance. The most qualified job applicant can lose out because of attendance issues. Poor attendance says a candidate is insensitive to co-workers, unaccountable for his/her responsibilities and uninterested in the company success. As a recruiter for a staffing agency, attendance is a very important factor when determining how successful a placement would be in using a candidate with poor past attendance.
