This is rarely asked to professionals during interview discussions pertaining to HR interview questions and answers.
Possible Answer #1:
“At college, we had an 85% attendance adherence rule. I followed this rule all along.
If there are certain policies in the company pertaining to an employee’s attendance, I will surely abide by them.”
Possible Answer #2:
“I value punctuality in my personal life. I am absent from work, it is backed by either a prior notification or a valid reason.
I follow all company rules and HR policies regarding attendance and leave.
I do not encourage habitual evasion of work among my team members as well.
Habitual absentees are warned by me and I also put the work across to requisite authorities in case somebody is overtly disobedient.”
