By doing this you get the chance to improve your strategies that are disliked by your employees and may reduce the chance of losing potential candidates. As an HR you can do this by conducting an open and transparent discussion with your employees before they leave your organization.
Value their industry knowledge and skills: It often happens that there are certain tasks or skills which only a few of the employees know or have access to. And if that employee is serving notice period, make sure you discuss with them about how you can get better with those skills. Moreover, ask them to train and deliver those skills to the other existing employees.
Encourage employee retention: Suppose an employee leaves the company all of a sudden without any information, the other employees will obviously guess the reasons behind their sudden departure. They might feel that the company has fired the employee and the same might happen with them in the future. So, it becomes necessary that you make things clear with your employees before getting questioned by your employees.
