Employee absenteeism and a jammed printer resulting in service calls and essential office equipment downtime are causes for lost productivity in the office. Berto thinks they may be related.
Downtime of essential office equipment is another cause and cost for lost productivity. Broken printers frustrate end-users while slow printers in high-volume areas cause people to stand around waiting for documents. Dave Quint provides five reasons to consider outsourcing the care of your copier and printers.
On a totally unrelated matter, people miss work for a variety of reasons, many of which are legitimate and others less so. Some of the common causes of absenteeism include (but are not limited to):
- Bullying and harassment
- Burnout, stress and low morale
- Childcare and eldercare
- Job hunting
- Partial shifts
