2. Lydia has worked for you for over three years. She is normally a good employee, but lately you have noticed that she is leaving work around 4:30pm, even though she is supposed to stay until 5pm.

3. You are the Manager for a local 24 hour pharmacy store. You hired Maria about two months ago as the Night Shift Lead. Overall her performance has been good. She has a good manner with customers, and employees respect her. During the last few weeks, Maria has called in sick a few times, and completely missed her overnight shift. This has caused a lot of last minute shuffling as you have had to find a back-up for her. What action would you take with Maria? Maria asks about her “career” and future with the company. Define “career” and how you would manage Maria’s career development. Explain your thoughts and rationale.
