Employee attendance

UBC administrators encourage employee attendance and discipline issues through clear communication, keeping accurate records and promoting health and wellness.

The administrator's role

One key ingredient to success in the workplace is to ensure that staff consistently attend work. As an administrator, you can positively and proactively encourage attendance by:

  • communicating with staff.
  • keeping records to identify trends or trouble spots.
  • promoting health and wellness with your staff.

See below for the specifics of managing attendance for each employee group. Please contact your UBC human resources advisor if you have any questions.
