Feedback for each form
After the implementation of three forms in the organization, it is found that the three forms applied effectively and successfully. From the employment code of conduct policy, it is stated that MACVILLE has properly implement the professional working environment. This policy helps the employee to understand that how they need to work or carry themselves at workplace.
Moreover, payroll policy also helped the employees to get the right compensation but most of the employees were found unsatisfied as many elements still uncovered in the payroll policy (Erwin, 2011). Additionally, termination policy is proved to be quite worthy as this policy clearly mentioned the area within which employee are getting terminated.
So in such case, the chances of confusion get quite less between the employer and employee. In short, all three forms contributed efficiency towards the organization but its significances is still not capture well because of less technology system support. So, it is required to bring improvement in such activity.

For this, it needs to focus on the advanced technology such as LAN, WAN or intranet/ internet (Borras & Franco, 2010). Other than that, E-mail is also considered as a professional way to inform the employee about the changes or regarding policy.
Thus, such technology adaptation helps the HR manager to communicate the format of documents to different team members. This way company can improve the problem of communication flow and improper document format problem.
