Question

I have employees that take advantage of the time given for lunch and breaks, I cannot keep and eye on them at all times and therefore they sneak to take too many breaks, too long and do the same for lunch. Do you have any ideas?


Answer

Answer:
Two suggestions – One, if you have team leaders or senior custodians, let them oversee a small group of custodians. Two, have your custodians track their day via a route book or similar reporting mechanism - this official document may reduce some of the liberties you are experiencing.
