Our management has recently requested daily report to be submitted by each staff on a daily basis of tasks or duties performed, also to communicate problems faced while performing tasks in daily report. 1 or 2 staffs have not complied therefore there is a constant struggle to stop other staff from following suit, many verbal warnings have been given but that has not produced any results. As a company whose minimum salary is no less than RM1,700 and above, plus group insurance policy, medical benefit, medical incentive, yearly bonus and appraisal, is it possible to make daily report as compulsory and salary deduction be imposed for failure to submit daily report be made? right now even when staff come in late to work there is no salary deduction whereas management prefers staff to replace late-in hours by staying back after work to replace the minutes staff was late, therefore management has been quite lenient on many issues, there is no basis why staff cannot comply on a simple request by management such as to submit DAILY REPORT.

 Well, from experience submitting daily report is really a pain in the .. and I don't wonder why everyone hates it. Besides compiling and digesting the reports can even be a bigger pain.

Administrator,

Thank you for your comment. The compilation is done by HR and the digesting is done by MD. The company base and origin is from Japan, therefore you must imagine the work ethics and culture where customer service is paramount, so thus emerged the daily report, those who "hate" daily report are not the expats whereas it is our own......however one way the answer is that top level management is not in favour of salary deduction whereas there was suggestion that those who do not provide daily report will be dealt with by counselling and memo which will therefore affect their annual review. Daily report on the long run should be a note to self to improvise and be the venue to voice out personal challenges faced by staff on a day to day basis to create Management awareness whilst doing their job - so says the MD.

As diplomatic as it sounds it is still compromising and I believe our local staff will not be deterred in their attitude towards daily report.

Well, if top management can manage it, just let the programme go on until such time.
