Why do you need to send HR Mails to Employees?

Today professional communication is extremely frequent and necessary. Employees work at multiple locations, across numerous time zones and continuously evolving business environments.

A survey by McKinsey conducted in 2012 states that the professional desk workers spend more than 28% of their working hours dealing with emails. And these numbers are increasing with each passing day!

To save you from all this hard work and uncertainty, we created a few HR Email templates in the first part of this blog post. It was received very well with 1000s of page views.

Based on the feedback, numerous responses and request for more frequently used mails, we are sharing some more HR Mails to Employees to assist you in your day-to-day communications.

We hope that we can assist you in your job and help you achieve your objectives!



Template 4. Employee taking frequent leave of absence

It is essential to maintain a work-life balance and taking some time-off is normal and expected.

Each organization provides paid-time-off to employees to allow them to handle personal exigencies and participate in hobbies of their choice. At the same time, employees cannot take days-off without an approval from their supervisor or at the cost of compromising work and deadlines.

Often supervisors approach HR to counsel employees if an employee is taking too many unplanned vacations. You can use the following HR mail to employee to start a conversation.
