If an employee is the only one in his department who showed up, will that reflect positively on his evaluation/raise?

Let’s say he ends up by himself twice (two different days within the same year), due to an employee in his department calling in sick, or scheduling to take off at the last minute (the day before), knowing his co-worker in department will be by himself if he decides to take off on that day.  Will the employee who was alone twice, he recognized for his dedication to come in to work so that the entire department won’t be absent?

    Someone else being knocked further down on the corporate ladder doesn't make your position any higher.  It just makes them lower.

    No. He was expected to come to work regardless of whether or not the other person came in. 2 days out of a year is not anything to brag about. If he had taken over the duties of the person in addition to his own duties for a period of several weeks, that would be different.

    Not really... since you were supposed to be there anyway.. The other employee may have a negative since he didn't show up though.

    You might get a few brownie points and a metaphorical pat on the back but don't expect a pay rise and a company car.

    He’s just doing his job. If he’s schedule to have the day off but then comes to work because of an emergency then that’s dedication.
