Recession Spurs Workers to Punch In on Time: Survey

Does

the fear of losing your job have anything to do with you getting to work on

time more these days?

According

to a new CareerBuilder survey,

there is a direct correlation between the beginning of the recession and

workers getting to work on time. The CareerBuilder survey showed that 15

percent of workers said they arrive late to work once a week or more, down from

16 percent in 2009 and 20 percent in 2008.

The

CareerBuilder survey was conducted nationally among 2,482 U.S.

employers and 3,910 U.S.

employees between Nov. 15 and Dec. 2,

2010. The survey was conducted across a variety of disciplines,

including IT.

Workers

shared a variety of reasons for being tardy, with the top excuse being

traffic-related (30 percent), followed by lack of sleep (19 percent),

CareerBuilder said. Nine percent blamed the bad weather for their

tardiness, while eight percent indicated a delay in getting their kids to

daycare or school. Other common reasons included public transportation,

wardrobe issues or dealing with pets.
