CEO: I've read your report, and I'm not sure I agree with you. You think you can get attendance inproved by requiring salaried employees to take their all of their sick days?
HR Manager: That's right. I know it must sound crazy to you, but we believe there will be fewer absences this way.
CEO: We give them 10 or 15 sick days per year. Surely requiring people to take them couldn't possibly help. It sounds like a counter - productive policy change to me.
HR Manager: Right now, we have incentives encouraging employees to come to work as often as possible. But employees with colds
and the flu are coming to work and infecting their colleagues.
CEO: I see. So our current policies are encouraing sick people to come to work, resulting in more sick employees.
HR Manager: That's right. If sick days were mandatory, sick people would stay home. We wouldn't have these company-wide epidemics. 是的。如果生了病就必须在家休病假的话，公司就不会发生大面积的疾病。
CEO: Let's give it a shot!
