Showing Up To Work On Time Policy Explained
In the United States punctuality is HIGHLY IMPORTANT. In U.S. culture a person that does not come to work on time or does not make appointments on time are considered lazy, rude, disrespectful and downright irresponsible. Employers in the USA do not tolerate employees that are late very often. It’s a part of U.S. culture that helps teach people there to be responsible adults and we would consider this to be one major part of the success the USA has enjoyed in the business world to date. Showing up to work on time or making your appointments on-time is a basic human act of being responsible adults.
We at Allshore / Datum understand that in Pakistan punctuality is not as important. However, we all must remember who we are working for. We are working for U.S. clients who do have high expectations of punctuality. The trade off is we have rare late sitting requirements. U.S. business culture states that they are work hard during their 8 hour shifts so they can go home immediately after 8 hours.
Same is true with the culture at Allshore / Datum. We rarely ask our developers to sit late. In fact, the only time it happens is when a client (project manager) asks, but it’s a rare occurrence. Come to work on time, don’t take excessive breaks and leave on time. That’s our motto.
When you are late for work it is HIGHLY EXPECTED that you call the Datum HR manager so he can inform an Allshore Account Executive. This allows us to explain to your client that you are running late and that you will be in shortly. It all goes back to TRUST AND ACCOUNTABILITY. We want our clients to feel as if you are working in their office and we are always doing everything we can to make the “Allshore Experience” as perfect as it can be.
