Hey guys, I just have to rant for a second....

I have the best employees in the world. Now usually I could talk about them all day, but this one takes the cake:

I get an email from one of the programmers on my team saying:

"Hello Mr. Lancheres, can you please remove 4.5 hours from my billed time, I accidentally clocked more hours even though I wasn't really doing serious work"

How amazing is that? He logged in more hours than usual on my time tracking software, and he emailed me to let me know that I should delete 4.5 hours from his week!

I don't always check, so it might have slipped through... but it just lets me know that I can trust this guy to really do his work.

So if you haven't outsourced and you're trying to expand your company.... DO IT! You'll eventually build a kick ass team

    Yes, a lot of business owners tend to over look how valuable their employees are. Sometimes they even take them for granted. As soon as you do take them for granted, they leave to go find greener pastures. Keep them happy, and they will keep you happy.

    Honesty will always be the best policy.

    I think he did that because he knows that you are a good employer. A man reaps what he sows.

    All of the outsources are more or less honest. but you won't believe that some of the employees sack or misbehave with their 1 year or older members just for simple mistakes. its not right. to save their 1$, they become so much aggressive sometimes.

    Yes, well done with building stable professional relationship with your employees, am sure they appreciate it, as in this case!

    Now, not to stereotype, but where was this employee from (country)?

    I'd let him keep the work hours in exchange for the honesty.
