    Re: How to avoid employees from sleeping during night shift?

    Hi Friend,
    Please discuss with employees and make the rule stringent as this can not be entertained in a private organisation like you.
    You have got your team members in night shift to meet customer deliverables. If they are not performing the duty main objective of night shift will be lost.
    It will negatively impact the business and your deliverables. Please talk to employees and let them know as they are getting off in day time they can take rest during that time not in office hours. If you still feel work timing needs to be changes try to make a roaster plan and keep rotating people in night shift on shift basis.
    This would help.

    hi Aspirant,
    This is totally a disguisting thing, if your employee sleep in working hour, then you should that to scold to them.
    As you have mentioned that you are a senior team leader, then you have to chance to scold to anyone junior member.
    If your juniors sleeping in Working hour, then how to you improve the company performance.
    Firstly you can asked seriously about it, Give 1-2 time for ultimatum but after that if they again sleeping during
    night shift then you can complain to HR department.
    Thanking you!
    Best of luck.

    Re: How to avoid employees from sleeping during night shift?

    Hi. I think its really sad that your employees are behaving like this but i think this is by nature that people get more sleepy at night. So its fully not thier fault. Of course they should understand their responsibilities and take proper rest in the day hours so that they dont feel sleepy at night.

    I think you should make arrangement for tea and coffee so that they could take it every few hours and thus dont sleep.

    Also you can arrange for some entertainment like music - good music which they will enjoy.

    Make the surroundings more attractive and not dull.

    If these things also dont help tell them that they will be fined for sleeping. This surely will wake them up.

    Best of luck. Thanks

    It usually happens in most of the night shifts in most of the companies. I recommend you to please talk to your manager about this and pass the idea of playing songs in night shifts. In some companies, it is allowed to play songs as it keeps the employee engaged with work and provide them with good entertainment during office hours. Also if it not possible as per the process, you can pass prizes based on good performance for hourly basis. This improves performance ans also make employee engaged with the work.

    Cool Re: How to avoid employees from sleeping during night shift?

    Hi,


    As a senior Lead , your not supposed to ask these questions . Because employees are not offered salary for sleeping in the company

    This clearly indicates the negligence of the employee or something is wrong at the higher level

    So everyday the employee has to complete the tasks allocated to him and is monitored by the Team lead

    If the work is allocated and the employee doesnt do that it should be taken to the Manager notice and action should be taken

    Everybody should be sincere in their work in completing the tasks

    This is team work . So coordintaion in work is a must

    If any one work is pending , delivery is delayed to the client

    Check whats going wrong in the work and correct it


    Thanks @@@

    Re: How to avoid employees from sleeping during night shift?

    Hi friend

    It is but natural to sleep during the night shift if we consider it from the point of view of a normal human being's sleep-wake cycle. Our circadian rhythm is adjusted in such a way that we sleep during the night after working during whole of the day. even doctors and interns who work during the night need some sleep so that they can work efficiently and as you know there duty is related to more precision as they deal with the lives of the patients.

    So of course your employees will tend to sleep during their night shift and you should certainly devise some methods to prevent them from sleeping. One is that you should give them strict instructions to take proper sleep of atleast 8 hours before they come for their night shifts. You would not tolerate them sleeping for hours when they should do their duty.
    Next thing you should do is to have a proper arrangement for tea and coffee throughout the night as these will act as stimulants and thus prevent your employees from sleeping.

    Another thing you can do is to tell them that you will be keeping a constant watch on them and the culprits will be given strict punishment for sleeping during their work timings. You should amend your company rules for such kind of behaviour and attach the same to your notice board so that the employees can see it. Then I am sure they will be afraid and this will enable them to be more responsible towards their work and not to be so carefree.

    I am sure these things will help you and thus you will have your problem solved. Good luck friend

    Re: How to avoid employees from sleeping during night shift?

    Hey!
    I can understand the problem that you are facing. Working at night is against the law of nature but the employees who have enrolled themselves for this job should make sure that they get adequate rest during the day. It is not just your duty to be strict with them but at the same time it is the duty of each and every employee that they should understand the nature of their job. They have to work for the organization and hence should give in their best.

    If the employees sleep during the night and do not perform their duty well then the company is bound to face a huge loss. You should make stringent rules regarding the employees dozing off at night. This can help to keep the employees awake to a certain extent. At the same time you should instruct tehm very strictly that they need to take a proper sleep of 7 hours before coming to the work place.

    Another thing that can help the employees to keep themselves awake at night is drinks like black coffee and black tea. They contain caffeine and nicotine respectively and they act as stimulants to keep the system well aware of the surroundings. The employees can consume tea or coffee whenever they feel that they are getting drowsy. This will definitely help them concentrate on their work better.

    I am sure that your problem is solved very soon. All the very best for your future.

    Re: How to avoid employees from sleeping during night shift?

    Hello there !!!

    to avoid the sleeping of the employee during the night hours is to replace those employee with them who are
    interested to work for night hours.
    this will solve the problem of both the parties.
    also you can warn the employee not to sleep during the office hour,also tell them that if they sleep during the office hour then
    their 3% of the monthly salary will be deducted.

    this will lead to some fear in them,and hope they will think 3-5 times before taking a small break.

    hope i am clear to you.
    thanks for posting in EALP.
