What is Punctuality?

First and foremost, being punctual at work shows you are dedicated and committed to your job role. It also signifies you as an employee to respect the company you work for. Punctuality is an important factor in the hiring process for a job role, especially because employers fire staff simply for being late to work if it becomes a habit.
   

So, why does being punctual benefit you at work?

1. Your Passion For Work
  • Shows your dedication to your job, even if you turn up a few minutes early.
  • Portray your time management skills.
  • You will notice a consistent workflow that will be produced. This is because you have not been stressed from the start of the day arriving late to work.
2. Deadlines are met
  • If you have a few minutes to spare you have a better chance to get more accomplished than a later comer who feels more pressurised.
  • Meeting deadlines assures clients of your commitments. Late submissions almost always hold back the full potential of an employee's workload.
3. Organised Workflow
  • Being punctual allows you to start and complete work effectively.
  • It helps plan out what work you need to have completed by a certain time.
   

Effects of being late to work

Being late to work can be frustrating if a colleague is relying on you for a specific work task. In addition, it has significant effects especially if you need to be in a meeting first thing in the morning. If you are late for a meeting, then it may have to be pushed back causing other colleagues' schedules to be impacted.
