Share Article

Fair and unbiased application of work rules can safeguard workers and improve productivity. Holiday's can be made safer for managers and workers if you have the right tools.

One in ten workers will have a drink on company time this St. Patrick's Day, according to a survey by CareerBuilder.com and reported in Workplace Prof Blog, a member of the Law Professor Blogs Network.

"This year, with St. Patrick's Day on Saturday employers would be well advised to prepare for these festivities to begin at work sometime earlier in the week, most definitely on Friday. It should come as no surprise to employers that many of their employees will begin to celebrate St. Patrick's Day on Friday, during work hours," warns Norm Heinle, CEO of Datamatics Management Services, Inc. an authority on workforce management. "Risky behavior, such as drinking on the job, can be controlled, to a degree by fair and unbiased enforcement of work rules and good management communication with employees."

Work rules are an increasingly important factor in workforce productivity. But, according to Heinle, "many companies are unaware that technology, linked directly to their time clocks and automated attendance can greatly simplify enforcement of rules and result in a more productive, safer, and happier workforce."
