Part of Ahmed’s role is to be in constant communication with the joint venture participants, keeping them up to date on project related changes at all times.
In the initial stages of the project, Ahmed does well and keeps everybody informed, as well as preparing and executing his own contributions to the development. However, as the project moves into a critical planning phase, he finds it difficult to stick to his personal work schedule. The joint venture participants have been requesting documents and information from Ahmed outside of the team’s scheduled meetings, distracting him from completing his own tasks.

Case Study 4: Developing and Implementing Workplace Policy (10 marks)
Tom, one of your employees, has worked in the office for ten years. He is well liked and knowledgeable about the history of the office and IT systems. There is no past history of performance issues that you can see from looking at past performance reviews. But your workplace does not have a performance policy as well. What you have observed is that Tom regularly shows up late, (office opens at 8:30am, Tom usually comes by 9/9:15 am), takes longer than an hour for lunch, and often is heading out the door by 4:30pm (office closes at 5pm). You notice that this type of behaviour seems to happen once in a while for other employees in the office, but seems like a daily practice for Tom. He never records any of this time on his time card as official time off. Since your organisation does not have a strict written policy in regards to performance, attendance and behaviour, you are now in the process to prepare a policy/rule for everyone to follow.
Question: Prepare a small policy for this workplace in regards to performance, attendance and other expected behaviour. Limit your policy within 300 words.
Answer:
PERFORMANCE, ATTENDANCE AND BEHAVIOUR POLICY OF XYZ COMPANY
