my staff keeps going to their old manager, horrible time-keeping rules, and more

Ask A Manager

And then you’d really need to follow through — if this staff can’t see you as their manager, you need to replace them with a staff who does. I’m rarely late, but there are days I would like to come in half an hour early or stay half an hour late to get work done or to make up for any lost time. I recently relocated from Texas to Massachusetts to start a new job that begins on Tuesday. HR never followed up with me.
