Last week you asked me whether I had any idea why certain employees seemed to have increased their level of _________________. While I can’t say specifically that I know why, I can make a suggestion that might help alleviate this problem.
A lot of people have had difficulty adapting to _________________. I understand that top management felt that people were becoming too lax and taking these privileges for granted, but it’s possible that taking the privileges away may have affected morale.
Perhaps these privileges could be reinstated on a merit basis — so that people with lower absentee rates or higher productivity rates could have some extra time off, or some similar arrangement. I think that a change like this may have a positive impact on the problems you were mentioning.
Thanks for paying attention to this suggestion; I hope you think it is worthwhile.
