The saga of employees

I employed a contract sales person a couple of months back for one of the streams of our business.

At first he was really great, he quickly closed a whole lot of deals that had been hanging around for a while almost ready to close.

But then something started to happen, he started to become erratic and there was an inconstancy in his work hours.

Sure it's a contract position so he was able to pick and choose which hours best suited the sales process and fit in to his own schedule of other things.

But in the last two weeks he came in on Monday of last week and hasn't come in again, his emails are not being returned and his phone is not being answered.

As a boss this is unacceptable, it's a bloody pain because we have clients almost about to close that have been through their needs with him and don't want to do it all over again.

Now starts the process all over again of finding someone and training them up on our systems and the product.

I am pretty fair and even handed and hope he hasn't ended up in a ditch somewhere, but I have a sneaking suspicion he has just done a runner.

It is likely that he has the office line and my mobile in his phone and that's why he is not answering his phone

Anyway - such is life!

Try blocking your number when you ring him - if he doesn't realise it's you, he may answer...

I did that as i have an unlisted number at home so tried from home

maybe he is actually dead?

how do you go about finding these sorts of things out I wonder?

Go to where he lives. See if his stuff is there.
