There has been an ongoing productivity issue arising out of some individuals who have either many vacation days or numerous sick days. Those who have to pick up the slack are less than thrilled and often less productive.
To solve this problem Creep has two recommendations. First, critical functions (such as HR lawyer gooning) will have a Permanent Employed Worker (PEW) who will step in to perform the role of the missing regular worker. This individual will be an extra headcount, not someone who is already on the team.
Second for functions that are that are not at all critical (like Senior Management), the salary of the absent person will be spread among the person's direct reports for the period the person is gone. Knowing full well that the missing person has car payments for their Lexus or Mercedes, the funds for the salary reallocation will come from a separate pool of money, not the absent person's paycheck.
CREEP believes this will reduce resentment although there is a risk that the direct reports will calculate the salary of their boss and make comments such as " I can't believe they pay that moron to do what he/she does."
