Hint for managers [Nov. 25th, 2009|02:31 pm]
John
When you can pull up labor for your workers, and can find they logged 9 hours on Monday and over 10 on Tuesday, make sure you say something to them on Wednesday. Temper it to their desires - and make sure you know them.

"Thank you" is always good.

"I want you to know, people are noticing your work ethic" is good for those ambitious people.

"So, what can we do to get you out of here on time today?" is good for almost anyone - the ambitious can say they're having too much fun to leave early, the sick can say "yeah, that'd be great. I have some callbacks to make, if someone can help."

In the meantime, I've solved two cases in my flippin' *SPARE TIME* while working these hours. I'm getting better at this job.

Aiyiyi. Safe to assume a particular manager hasn't said a goddamned thing?

Sounds like we both need a nice, restful weekend. I'm *so* looking forward to it...
