Employee retention refers to the ability of an organization to retain its highly performing employees and decrease their turnover, thereby decrease recruitment and training costs and loss of talent and organizational knowledge. 


Retention can be represented by merely statistic (for example, a retention rate of 90% usually indicates that an organization kept 90% of its employees in a given period). However, many organizations perceive employee retention as their plans and activities to retain highly performing employees (talents) in the workforce. In this sense, retention becomes the strategy rather than the outcome.




Retroactive reporting

Retroactive reporting is the updating of attendance / absence of an employee data after the payment of wages for the purpose of adjusting the calculation and updating the balance of absence entitlement. 
This is required in cases when absence from work is considered by the payroll department as absence that requires withholdings from wages, whereas in practice the employee is entitled to payment.
Attendance software that allows retroactive updates guarantees that there is full correspondence between the employee’s attendance and absence data and the calculation of the payment to which the employee is entitled.
