What Is No Call No Show (NCNS)?

No call no show (NCNS) is a common phrase for when someone misses work and doesn’t call to let their employers know.

The negative impacts of no call no shows extend far beyond one person; it has a ripple effect on the entire team.

No call no shows put a strain on the business, lead to mistrust and are difficult to fix in a real-time scenario. Other consequences of a no call no show include:

  • Shorthanded teams
  • Decreased morale and heightened stress
  • Safety and compliance issues
  • Missed tasks and deadlines
  • Up to 36% productivity loss
