HR Dilemma: Can you ask staff to come in 15 mins early?

HR Dilemma: Can you ask staff to come in 15 mins early?

Everyone’s guilty of it. You start at a certain time so you arrive at that time, on the dot. But you’re not ready for work. By the time you’re ready to work valuable time has passed. So, can you reasonably ask your employees to come in earlier so they’re ready to work when the clock strikes?

Short answer: not unless you want to pay them more. This is always an option, staff deserve to be remunerated for the time they put in, but in Brexit belt-tightening times pitching the idea of paying staff to get ready to work may come across as self-defeating.
