Are We Bajans Really Lackadaisical?

Absenteeism on the rise in Barbados

Absenteeism on the rise in Barbados

Have you all heard? Latest findings coming out from a recent HR symposium proposes that Barbados has the highest rate of employee absenteeism in the Caribbean. Who Bajans? Is that right? Surpassing the land of the humming bird fete today call in sick tomorrow? All ya really sure you got that one right? So were we dreaming then, when we recently saw an award being accepted on behalf of  Bajans, for being number 38 in the World on the social development ladder, number 3 in the Americas? Wait lazy people wearing two different shoes nowadays then, (brand name) ‘industrious’ on one foot,  ‘shirkers’ on the other? Such a skewbald would surely tumble someday, being  confused and not know which foot goes first.

Could all this have anything to do with Bajans been  under a ‘trance by chance‘, like the one of the recent bus riding pensioner and her rude awakening from what could befall? Too much phantasmagoria maybe? One day we hearing we doing well, next we need  to “shift and adjust” like a lesson of a confusing schematic  inculcating too much  to pedants, who still recovering from an unaccustomed downward economic fall. “You all had better do this, don’t mind us, ”. If the shoes fits… Like a call to curtail perks and privilege of  statutory corps, but an unwillingness to lead by example. Sounds familiar?

Too much double standards man, some given license to sleep, while others sheeple. Any wonder some still stuck in gear?  Sheeple will always follow.

  1. scientists were conducting experiments on a frog, they poked it yelling jump and concluded a two legged frog jumps two feet.they took one leg off,again poked it yelling jump and found a one legged frog jumped one foot, they cut the last leg off,poked and yelled, the frog did not move they tried again still no movement so they concluded a frog with no legs is deaf.
    I did not read whether there was any paid sick leave which would have a direct influence on people being absent.nor how time and a half for holidays had any effect on people showing up, and I would suggest that the low rate in the hospitality sector is not only do they lose there wages but also the tips that make a bulk of their income. These studies have a place, and it is hard to cover all bases, but nothing can beat due dilligence when an employee is first hired, and the most relevant thing for me in the study was that the unions must be a partner in the abuse of sick leave doing their part in curbing the perennial malingerers so that the people who need help can get the resources they need.


  2. Barbadians are following in the footsteps of their Prime Minister. Why should we work when he is still strong in his slumber?

    His example is to do nothing, that is his legacy. It seemingly brings success as he was re-elected. I urge Bajans to do likewise as success will come your way also by job promotion or some other form

    IT IS CALLED
    FREUNDELITIS

    LAZY , DOCILE . DONT CARISH. VISION-LESS . WAITING UNTIL THE CABIN BREK DOWN , SLOTHFUL , DOING NOTHING, TALKING CRAP
    LIVING OFF PEOPLE; NEVER PRODUCED OR CREATE ANYTHING,
    EMPHASIS ON SPEECHYFYING; NATO

  4. PLANTATION DEEDS FROM 1926-2013 AND SEE MASSIVE FRAUD ,LAND TAX BILLS AND NO DEEDS on said:

    If the People move like the Ministers then it may be true, But the People are underpaid for their work , So they may look to adjust things with more time off. The are paid like the people in the DVD
    LIFE AND DEBT.


  5. I would think that Social development refers to programs that have been put in place for the benefit of citizens. The work ethic is BADDD, with all the benefits in place like Free Education, Free Health Care, NIS, Free Bus Fares, Unemployment benefits, Welfare we are becoming a lazy and dishonest nation. There will come a time when the state will realize that all this freeness will not increase productivity, nor will it instil good work ethics.

    I recently spoke to a businessman who was complaining bitterly about some of his workers who cannot read nor write. They were the most problematic workers. Believe it or not there are many out there like that. Isn’t it amazing that our forefathers never had the opportunities we have and were able to read and write and perform their jobs with the greatest amount of pride. Now we have University Graduates who cannot properly string a sentence together. We have become a nation where there are no standards and will accept the lowest form of mediocrity.


  6. If we are going to comment do so sensibly. The issue of absenteeism predates Prime Minister Stuart. We expose ones ignorance wantonly?


  7. Like a call to curtail perks and privilege of statutory corps, but an unwillingness to lead by example. Sounds familiar?

    **************************
    I too calling a spade a spade bright and early this Saturday morning…Morning all… nice to be back in the land of trances…wait if I had as much mooney as this Minister..I would call Napolean’s bluff….$7,000 a month can’t hurt this banky banks….Again crab in the barrell mentality sojurns….now it is the underlings must give the perks and privledges while head hanchos keep theirs ….talk about settin examples…


  8. To Lawson’s point it comes back every time to leadership. Here is an example. The government returns a tariff from 20% to 184% and it appears no sensitivity analysis was done to anticipate impacts. Instead we waste resources by having to call the talk shows, hold meetings etc to arrive at a situation where Minister Inniss appears to be demonstrating leadership when it all could have been avoided.

    On another page we have the head of BAMP suggesting that there is no evidence that doctors are complicit in the sick leave/absenteeism mess. Does anyone remember when over 200 policemen went on sick leave a few years ago?


  9. I have a couple of thoughts:

    1. productivity is supposed to be as much about management as it is about workers. Whats does this say about the quality of management in Barbados? Human Resource management is one of the professions that has really mushroomed over the last 20 year. Interesting that the rise of this profession seems to have occurred alongside declining worker productivity.

    2. maybe economy and society are more linked than some like to acknowledge. Work ethic (maybe entrepreneurship as well) might be more closely related to deeper societal values than economic policy initiatives or management expertise. maybe we now have a generation that has been taught its all about the economy, its all about me and money in my pocket, , the hell with philosophy, values and all that esoteric stuff.


    • Equating the study of the management discipline and integrating said discipline in company strategy and HR Policy is another thing.


  10. What about when people work, & they don/t get paid? What about men getting more money than females when they are doing the same work? Doesn’t these things come into the equation? Right now I know Government people who are working & have not been paid for months. I am sure the MP’s all get their pay & perks on time; so please tell me what’s right here!!!! Tell me why the QEH don’t have what is needed to do eye surgery for the public, when asked don’t have money to pay for it. Doesn’t the people of Barbados who have paid their taxed & Nat. Ins, deserve proper treatment? Will someone please tell me11111


  11. Don’t underestimate the “values” issue. The strength of the unions is another issue as well some antiquated management practices.


    • @Observer

      There is a contradiction in your observations. Have not complimented the Social Partnership of which the union is an integral part? If absenteeism is a big issue should it not be occupying the the Social Partnership as a priority matter? So how do we measure the effectiveness of the partnership. The recent protocol was signed with much fanfare.


  12. The social partnership has been effective in promoting a degree of industrial harmony. has this played a negative role in terms of productivity? its an open question.


  13. who is the better employee the one that shows up everyday on time and spends the day fixing their mistakes or the one who is never on time misses often but when they are their does two days work in one. In the first theres perfect harmony employee shows up, employer doesnt have to disipline him ,union doesnt have to represent him company goes broke.


  14. If we are going to comment do so sensibly.

    All you BU bloggers who are either close to or above middle class.

    Are any of you willing to publish the wages of shop assistants and cashiers,labourers on plantations and farms,security guards,school meals workers, clerks and messengers in Law firms and Doctor’s offices.
    People working in manufacturing/factories?

    You can’t discuss productivity without talking about wages and working conditions.


    • @Hants

      The argument is connected. How can we be braying about the stability of a social partnership if it does not factor/include your concerns?


  15. The major reason there is so much absenteeism is that employees are being paid for a certain number of days whether they stay home or come to work. The benefits of being sick or away from work are way too generous in the public sector and in many a private sector companies, especially when combined with NIS benefits.

    How many so called “sick days” are allowed in the public sector before pay is docked? You think that the majority of public workers don’t take those days? In the private sector where union agreements are in place and or company policies allow a certain number of sick days with full pay and perhaps full pay for first 2 weeks of any certified sickness with NIS benefit don’t you think employees take the days? They are getting paid whether they come to work or not.

    An interesting study would be how much absenteeism takes place after the number of “sick days” are exhausted and employees are not being paid. What is the rate of absenteeism for self-employed people?


  16. you cant discuss profitability without talking wages or conditions, productivity can be achieved on work ethic ,nationalism etc


  17. @Hants
    Recent tragedy in Bangladesh. Over one thousand seamstresses manufacturing clothing for places like WalMart, Loblaws, Benniton, killed in the collapse of an eight story factory. How much were these people working for? they wer working for less than $40.00 per MONTH. Productivity was high. compare wages with Barbados. Would our people work under these conditions? Is it any wonder that the major conglomerates in the West go East to have their work done? Remember we had a company here called Cooper’s making hockey equipment? I spoke to Mr. cooper when he was moving the company to a facility in the far east, he told me it was simple economics. Wages there were substantially less than what he had to pay Barbadian workers Simple economics. Right here in Canada a few weeks ago it was revealed that RBC was shifting a lot of their work to India. I had to make some calls this past week to Bell canada, the person who answered was in the Phillipines, Another call to Vonage revealed that the person answering was located in Costa Rica, All the call centres are located overseas-work outsourced to cheaper locations. Could Barbados compete with these places? I think not.


  18. Alvin…………most of the jobs have now all gone virtual, it saves tons of money on having workers come into the office everyday and all the stress and overheads that it entails. Most jobs are now online, you can stay on your computer in the US and work for someone in China and vice versa, all you need is software and voila.


  19. All of Barbados knows that the Minister is in fact on point when he talks about certain Doctors who indiscriminately write sick leave certification. I live in New York and could name four at this very moment,so go figure. Dr.Chase knows this as well.


  20. I finding it really difficult to understand all the mystique…..Plain n simple Bajans have become frustrated with what they are seeing…who wouldn’t …when good NIS moneys put aside as pensions thru hard work being misused …possibly never to be there when the time comes….Money just paid out for the Alexandras pampalam ..$600,000 lawyers ‘worked’ for in 2 months …..not forgetting Doctor gone secretary fiasco… Long and short of it is ..people realising how D bread gettin buttered…and sayin “killin muh self for what nuh?”


  21. S talkers…. some can’t talk bout tings they failed miserably at… esp when the pot .. perm stained black black black…or shud we say bald pooch tabby-ism


  22. Alvin Cummins wrote ” Right here in Canada a few weeks ago it was revealed that RBC was shifting a lot of their work to India.

    (45 jobs)

    Fact checkOn Sunday, RBC confirmed it is laying off 45 employees who do IT-related work and outsourcing their jobs to a smaller number of employees who work for a firm called iGATE.

    Well Well wrote “most of the jobs have now all gone virtual”.

    Fortunately the BU intelligentia understand that you are indulging in hyperbolic b e.


  23. Hants……………..you may not know this, but part of what I do involves knowing where all the jobs have gone and i can tell you that most of the jobs, administrative, customer service, IT, computer programming, i cannot even list all there all will over 400 categories have all gone virtual………..i have a close family member a programmer living in North America with 3 jobs, 2 in different states and one in Japan, people are wondering what happened to the jobs well, there is no way I am going to rent a business place for $20,000.00 a month when i can hire 3-4 qualified people to work from home and just pay them their weekly salaries through the same firm IGATE that you just spoke about or pay them individually through an online firm………….get some information on it.


  24. Companies can now remote into anyone they hire (now called a contractor’s) computer, set up their system and have their work done online, employees now work 16-17 hours a day out of 24, online. There is a third party who connects contractor and company for a fee, not unlike the temp agencies i am familiar with in North America……..the employer saves on overheads, everyone gets paid and stays home happy, don’t even have to leave your house. People are acknowledging that the world has changed but they still do not know in what manner, the new way of hiring people is one of the changes, there are more that have not been revealed as yet, naturally people in the Caribbean will be among the last to know, since there are those of us in North America and Europe who are still blissfully unaware.


    • If we are discussing labour in a Barbados context, working remotely is not the issue here. We are a service economy in the main.


  25. @Well Well you must be a clone of ac.

    As should be obvious, all of us have access to computers and a lot of us are in managerial/administrative positions.

    Well Well wrote “employees now work 16-17 hours a day out of 24, online.””the employer saves on overheads, everyone gets paid and stays home happy,”

    lets see 24-17 = 7 hours left in a day to eat 3 meals shower etc. so that leaves about 4 or 5 hours for sleeping and if yuh lucky the occaisional fcuk.
    That is productivity.


  26. @Old Onions,
    Went fishing this morning and catch 4 creek chubs but they were no bigger than a red eye sprat.lol

    Walked about 4 kilometers and only saw two rainbow but they wouldn’t bite.
    Got a 24″ female(about 5 lbs) last sunday.

    Will try again tomorrow.


  27. @ David, there are still over 600,000 people working in offices in Toronto.

    You are right about Barbados.

    However the “Cultural Industries” could use some online presence. Musicians should sell their recordings online.

    The Artists could also try selling their paintings online.

    Just a thought.


  28. Hants………………..you continue to miss the message, people as far away as Jamaica are working online, that tells me that very shortly, employees in the Caribbean who are computer savvy will be working for companies around the world, globalization, or employers in Barbados will recognize the possibilities of hiring from around the world, everything is now online, if you get more productivity that way, why would you need someone coming into your workspace with bad attitudes, even travel agencies are starting the trend, you will not realize the this until you have to go online for everything.

  29. PLANTATION DEEDS FROM 1926-2013 AND SEE MASSIVE FRAUD ,LAND TAX BILLS AND NO DEEDS on said:

    Bajans are under paid , So the employer get what he pays for.
    We on the other hand paid workers and each year received 100 a month more, or 1200 a year for each year working for us. Who was lazy went home , Many people looking for work ,
    On their last pay check , we even gave them more money so they will not bad talk and said we owe them ,,
    Bajans dress better than they are paid , You would think they made good money.Most took very good care of self and at times cost them more to work for you than they were being paid.
    Cheap labor for those who set up with govt tax ease .
    How can the Ministers get 9 percent more and the people have to walk off work for 2.5 percent ,
    Who is working for who?


  30. Hants…..soon those 600,000 offices spaces in Toronto will be on the market for rent, employers are trying to get away from renting office spaces, hence the rise of virtual assistants and virtual managers, yes those are actually the new job titles. Companies around the world are hiring employees around the world to work from home, it is a trend that is gaining momentum. Just a matter of time before it hits the Caribbean, they will probably be the last to be dragged kicking and screaming into the new world order, but they have no choice cause there will not be enough cash flow to maintain.


  31. Hants……………don’t look at this as an argument, I am not the type of bajan to have information that i know could severely impact other people’s lives and keep that information to myself out of ignorance, the information I am sharing with you is valid and accurate, you will tell me in another year or two when it has really taken stride, what your opinions are on the matter.


  32. I am sure some of you have by now typed in virtual assistant and virtual managers in google, most people cannot find jobs around the world, but if you go into certain databases you can access hundreds of thousands of jobs.


  33. And this my friend, is not even the beginning:

    “It is estimated that 41 million corporate employees globally will spend at least one day a week as a virtual worker and 100 million will work from home at least one day a month”


    • @Well Well

      Your point about telecommuting has been made 10 fold.

      We are battling however with absenteeism argument in a Barbados context.


  34. David…………..that will be the deciding factor for employers in Barbados, the government will be a different story, if they continue to accept mediocre work from employees they will have to deal with the consequences, i don’t see Trinidad employers (in barbados) accepting that, when they can get efficiency and competence just by accessing certain databases.


  35. @Islandgal246.
    Isn’t it amazing that our forefathers never had the opportunities we have and were able to read and write and perform their jobs with the greatest amount of pride. Now we have University Graduates who cannot properly string a sentence together. We have become a nation where there are no standards and will accept the lowest form of mediocrity.
    …………………………………………………………………………..
    We had men who for years ,worked all across the island maintaining the various steam engines and ancillary equipment in the sugar factories, who were quite rightly known as Engineers. But this soon came to an end, when the other mill, the degree mill on the hill started to turn out book Engineers, ten to the dozen, most of whom do not know a bolt from a nut,and when the shit hits the fans, we have to call in consultants from over and away..
    Last year was a typical example ,when the start of the sugar crop had to be postponed, as the brains of Barbados, had forgot to order White Lime . Something that have never occurred when the “stupid people were in charge.” In fact up to the 1960’s good quality White Lime was readily available from one of the many Kilns across the island,and it was tested for quality, by the resident chemists at each sugar factory. And now we have the gall to question the lack of entrepreneurship and skills among Barbadians.


  36. Are We Bajans Really Lackadaisical?
    Do fish swim??
    Is the PM awake?
    Does the Barbados legal system work?
    Are Politicians ethical and honest?
    Do Bims lawyers overcharge?
    Does CHEFFETTE Overcharge?
    Am I too fat?
    Are YOU too fat?
    Is my wife “horning”me?
    Will my boss give me a rise?
    Will the sunrise in the east?
    Is water wet?
    Am I asleep?
    Is this real??
    Do i Live in Bim?
    WHY did you ask such a stupid question to Start with?


  37. Well Well wrote “employees now work 16-17 hours a day out of 24, online.””the employer saves on overheads, everyone gets paid and stays home happy,”

    Nobody can be happy working 16-17 hour workdays.


  38. Today’s Nation carry a story of a young girl, whose welfare grant has been stopped and who is now HIV +, but that is not my main concern. How can a child brought up in a Children’s Home turn out to be illiterate. Even if that child had entered that institution that way, all efforts should have been made to ensure that when that child eventually leaves there , she is able to read and write, even if it meant private tuition.
    The tuition fee probably would not be as high as the $700 that the Welfare Department, ie the Taxpayer, has been paying each month for the rental of a single room in some rundown doss house. Perhaps that little education might have turned this young lady’s life around, instead of literally throwing her to the many dogs on Bush Hill.
    Whoever is in charge, including the Ministry, of the administration of Children’s homes in this island,should today hang their heads in shame.


  39. Well Well | May 18, 2013 at 8:02 PM |
    David…………..that will be the deciding factor for employers in Barbados,
    ……………………………………………………………………
    It has already started. Some expats are advertising for Maids etc, and stating that a foreign national is preferred, and apparently one local newspaper carry that advert.
    Jobs are being advertised in the local newspapers for position that many Barbadians are trained and qualified for,and with the necessary experience. But as sure as night follows day,in a short while another notice appears in the same newspapers, with words to the effect, “that having receive no suitable applicants, it is the intention of XYZ Company to apply for a work permit for a non-national.”
    And in true Bajan style. Nobody ,including the Government and the Unions, raises any objections.


  40. Sometimes employers are foolish.

    Employee: I would like to take 2 hours vacation time off on Wednesday morning to take Little Johnny to the doctor.
    Employer: You can’t use your vacation time to take Little Johnny to the doctor. You must arrange to take Little Johnny to the doctor on Saturdays.
    Employee quietly in her/his head: This man must be an idiot. Doesn’t he know that most doctors in Barbados don’t work on Saturdays (nor Sundays, nor evenings). Most PTA meetings, legal, banking, passport office, driver’s license office etc. can’t be done on Saturdays either.
    Wednesday morning at 8:01 Employee: I am sick today and I can’t come to work.
    Employer: ok.

    So instead of permitting the employee to use 2 hours of vacation time to take Little Johnny to the doctor, or to attend a PTA meeting, or take elderly parent to the doctor, or to attend a legal, or banking, or other appointment the employer forces the employee

    1: To Lie.
    2. To take 8 hours “sick” time.

    Most employers are stupid and have zero people skills.

    I wonder what would happen if all employers agreed to permit employees to take small amounts of vacation time as needed for personal appointments?

    Maybe, just maybe, this would reduce the “abuse of sick leave”


  41. Colonel Buggy asked “How can a child brought up in a Children’s Home turn out to be illiterate?”

    But Colonel every country has illiterates. A few people in spite of the best efforts of the teachers will never learn to read.

    I expect that this young woman born about 1987, that is, at the beginning of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Barbados, probably contracted HIV from her mother, and likely spent years, and years and years in the hospital.

    Does anybody go to the hospital to teach long term child patients to read? Do you go? Would you have gone in the QEH in mid-80’s to teach an HIV positive child to read? Would the child have been well enough and alert enough to take lessons? Have you ever been sick enough that all you wanted to do was draw up in a corner and die? Did you feel like lessons and exams at that time?What happens to the education of a child who is sick, very very sick, for years at a time? What was her life expectancy when she was born in 1987? Did anybody expect her to survive to age 25?

    Why didn’t you in 1987 volunteer to take n a HIV positive child,and to raise her as your own? to educate her? Too much work right? And she ain’t gine make it to adulthood right? So why bother? In 1987 when modern HIV/AIDS drugs were not yet available, that child’s life expectancy was about 3 years old.

    Did we all make an error in not educating her?

    Yes we did.

    Fast forward 2013. How many people in 2013 are willing to take in an HIV positive child and to raise and educate that child as their own? Zero?

    We expect “the government” to do it right?

    And then we blame “the government” when they screw up.

    Perhaps we should be,blaming ourselves.


  42. Under an inept government like the present DLP government more crap will show up.
    This government an Freudelitis inspires no one.
    Stuart looks like one lethargic piece of rubber. His personna is not exciting, his speeches boring, his actions dissappointing,
    WANTED :Someone and/or a Prime Minister to inspire the people at this time, at this critical juncture in time


  43. It most amazing how we can debate workers and loss of economic productivity because of absenteeism without examining the most classic example of that twin malaise.
    There is a saying that a fish usually starts to rot from its head down. And this scenario of rot in the local version of Denmark is taking place right in our highest place of lowest productivity and frequent absenteeism called Parliament.

    How can one reconcile the Minister’s berating of workers and their so-called accomplices in the medical profession for “fee-arranged” skiving when he and his parliamentary colleagues on the slim majority side are going on such long leave on a regular basis leaving the people’s business undone at a time when the country’s economic performance and production are way below par.
    How can one justify going on leave for 6 weeks just after the 2013-14 Estimates returning on the 7th of May and off again on another 4 weeks holiday at a time when this country is up an economic creek without a financial paddle?

    Are these politicians thinking that by doing nothing and ignoring the issues the problems would just disappear into thin air? They are no different from the ordinary people who take their cue from their bosses and go to work in the various ministries, departments and statutory agencies under the ministers’ responsibility.


  44. @Miller
    Re your last paragraph:
    Yes they do
    Yes they can
    Yes the problems will vaporise.
    and
    Barbados along with the problems.

    Our requiem will be:
    “The Sonorous Snores of an elected SOMNAMBULIST.”

    Composed .conducted and performed by the Honerable member Himself and accompanied by his band of Theives..
    Halliujah brothers! The last one left, turn out the light .


  45. LOL it funny how leaders in Barbados think that they can leave it up to the workers to get everything right. like the tail is wag the dog.

    LOL big joke, Change got to start from the top and come down not the other way around. Where is the evidence/data that absenteeism is on the rise any way? i think the DLP just wanna change this sick leave thingy/law so they bring up the subject. Witch “class” is taking the sick leave. workers or managers?

    And

    would it not be easier to go after the doctors that give out the sick leave.

    And

    What are the people sick of??????????????


  46. sick leave is a problem everywhere, a major problem is not so much the sick leave but the unfunded liability created by accumulated sick leave.In my job I was given 18 days sick leave a year and if not used they were accumlative.When I retire I would be paid out for those days at my salary level after 35 years even though they were earned in my first year of working Over the years things have changed a bit but each retiring employee recieves 6 momths salary, and six months payout for those sick days.as long as they have 260 of them left.


  47. @ Miller

    *********************
    Politicians should be the very last ones to talk of non productivity for dollar value worth, Where is your beef Mr.Inniss ? When last any of them gave an honest days work for a magnaminous wage…spew spew…Bajan sheeple just following…


  48. We should remove this discussion from the realm of the political. They are part of the problem and not necessarily the cause. It was just a few months ago BLPites were finding excuses for Arthur NOT attending a poorakey parliament.


  49. Simple Simon………………..no one in their right mind is happy about a 16-17 hour workday, but i don’t think the architects of this new world order had anyone’s happiness in mind when they created it, however, in order to pay rent/mortgage, buy food, pay bills etc, etc, etc, regardless to your feelings, you have to do what you must.

    It’s easy to blame the politicians for everything because they are such a good example of bad leadership, in this instance though, they really and truly are clueless to what is happening in reality, they have been waiting since 2007 to see what happened with the US and Europe regarding the economic situation, thing is, it has already happened and they did/do not know.

    Colonel………………more to come, just time.
