You are most welcome dear. :)
I'm glad that I'm of some help. All those topics that are written in my mail are all real time problems.
Work culture maintainance is a huge responsibility on HR Manager.
Managing change is again a big hurdle for the success if not adhere to properly.
Maintaining a balance between work life and personal life is also real life problem, due to which stress and conflicts take place.
Surely even I would appreciate if other members put in their valuable inputs.
