How should I handle employees who call in sick often?

I had an employee for a month who constantly calls in sick. It was suspicious but I didnít question him whether he was really sick in front of him and choose to trust him. It turns out he was interviewing during the sick leaves and he just told me today he finds another job elsewhere and is leaving.

If itís an employee you want to keep ó then use it as a flag.

A flag that you need to do a better job retaining the troops.

Nothingís more important than the talent on your team. You should always be watching for signs that any of your best people might be leaving. Sick too often. Odd phone calls. Complaints on Facebook, subtweets on Twitter. Slumped shoulders. Even, just leaving work a smidge earlier than usual.

You can take this personally, or, you can take action.

Iíve learned you can save mosts great employees from leaving, if you take action early enough.

Go talk to her. Ask if she isnít happy. Ask what it will take to keep her.

You probably can keep her.

If you act early enough. If you act once you see a sign, a flag.
