In Episode 16 of Happywork TV, I present the next commitment in my work code of conduct called “The Happywork Agreement.”
This one is made by employees to their employers. It goes like this: “I will show up to work on time, or will communicate when I can’t.”
That’s it! Freakin’ show up to work on time! Your employer does not deserve the shenanigans about alarm clocks that didn’t go off, car trouble, and all the rest.
If you have an extenuating circumstance, please communicate it with your superiors! For me, Happywork is all about work/life balance. I don’t just care about your work happiness; I want the entire user experience known as your life to be a great one. You want to be able to drop your kids off at school, and be at their parent/teacher conferences, and more. So there will be times you can’t make it to work on time – COMMUNICATE! I am hopeful your employer will understand. Create an open line of communication, and be reliable for your employer.
What of workplaces with flex time? They’re awesome. But, if you don’t work at such a place, and they tell you your shift starts at 8am, be there at 8!!!
