Diversity training must be directed and certain standards are to held while meeting an applicant. Diversity awareness training, setting related objectives and applying standards must be made mandatory in the company. The organization must structure their enrolling procedure and take after a formal example of meeting fusing strict business laws and balance.

Post-employment surveys ought not be constrained on the worker; it must be wilful.
According to the case:
Tasty Ltd, did not offer significance to the post-employment surveys led. The meetings scarcely went on for more than ten minutes and were held by the managers just if time allowed. Post-employment surveys must be made mandatory in an organization held in view of the willingness of the withdrawing worker. An eye to eye meet must be held by a HR individual rather than the manager, as individuals have a tendency to be more transparent and give better chances to test and get to the underlying foundations of hesitant sentiments. On account of timid workers or individuals who detest an immediate meeting a survey can be offered out to them. As far as dealing with the meeting, it is imperative for the questioner to listen as opposed to talk giving the leaving representative time and space to reply, recalling that the point is to inspire perspectives and criticisms and not to address.

Tasty Ltd, should make it a point to make enough time to hold exit meeting in order to retain staff.
