Why “Being on Time” is Very Important in the Workplace?

Why does the corporate world stress so much on punctuality? Why is it important to be on time, may it be a business meeting, an interview, or even for daily office? Why is punctuality associated with dedication towards the job? What difference does it make if you’re five minutes late or if you miss a day or two at the office?

A leader who is late shows that he/she doesn’t respect his clients and his/her staff. It shows that he/she is team-centered and reliable or trustworthy.
