Dealing with late-comers in workshops

One of the challenges every Facilitator / Trainer has to deal with is the learners coming in late.
My advise: If more than half of the expected learner group are in the room, I kick-off my program. 
When the late-comers arrive, I acknowledge them with 'eye contact' - at times integrate them with a quick recap of what I have covered.

If less than half are in the room, then I ask the sponsor (HR / Business) what should be done? - most of them advice a wait of at least 15 mins. We then announce this to those present - so that they can have coffee or maybe catch up on a call or two.  In the meantime the sponsor starts calling/texting the no-shows to find out what is happening. After the extended time lapses, we just start.

Funnily, many curse these discriminations however the same people aspire promotions not for the challenge of the enhanced deliverables or for the sense of leading people, but mostly for the ‘power’ that they would enjoy in those positions.
However, as Bob Dylan professed in the 60’s in his song The Times They Are A-Changin'  especially the…
