The payroll function comes in handy in this step.
An important practice that every HR department should follow is investing in the training of employees. It helps them to identify the skills of their employees, which will help them to retain employees, improve employee skills, and make them more competitive by increasing their productivity.
The next important practices to look into are transparency, employee benefits, and employee feedback, which are an important part of any organization to deal with absences, resolve conflicts and promote employees.
