Be On Time For Work
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you an employee who prides yourself on promptness? Unavoidable circumstances, such as heavy traffic, an accident, or a flat tire may occasionally cause you to be late for work. When you know you are going to be late, you call your supervisor and let him know. Usually, however, you show up on time. It is important to be on time for work. Why?

One reason is because it shows that your job is important to you. You make it a priority in your life. You are conscientious and show up on time. Your supervisor will notice your dedication to your job when he makes out the work schedule for the week. Rather than cutting your hours, he may offer you more. With more hours, you can have a better life. You can pay your bills, rather than worrying about getting your utilities turned off. You can keep your gas tank full, which will allow you to come in to work. Finally, your dreams have a chance of becoming a reality.

A second reason is because showing up late is unfair to those who do show up on time. People often do not like their jobs, or certain aspects of their jobs, all the time. There are days when they would rather not come in to work or would rather skip some of their normal work duties. Still, they show up for work and perform their job like they always have. They deserve full pay. Someone who shows up late is not on time for his shift. Therefore, he should receive less money for that day's work.

Another reason to avoid being late is because supervisors and coworkers want people who are reliable. They want to know that they can count on you. If your work attendance pattern is sporadic, you will likely be excluded from work projects. They will instead go to your more reliable coworkers and ask them to be involved.

You may occasionally need a letter of recommendation from a supervisor, such as if you are a high school student who is applying for a scholarship to help you pay for college. A good attendance record at work will help you to get a favorable letter from your supervisor, rather than an unfavorable one, and help you stand a better chance of getting the scholarship you are after.

Finally, being late for work is unfair to you. You miss out on the chance to develop your skills and to get to know your supervisor and coworkers better. Be on time for work. There will be many opportunities for you. Do not miss out on a great experience.
