Communication is a two way process, and hence it is vital that you create adequate feedback mechanisms to capture the voice of your employees and to understand their point of view.

to capture the voice of your employees and to understand ---To is already there (To capture ) , so to is not required in second part .
so C is alright ..

Please elaborate your queries in future - without knowing your doubt, it would be difficult for someone to address it properly. Assuming that you have a problem between A and C, the general explanation is as follows:

The verbs "create" and "understand" are in parallel. Hence option C is correct.

One may argue that option A is also correct, but given the sense of the sentence, you create mechanisms to capture the voice, and then using the captured voice you understand the view. The mechanism is not to (directly) understand the view. Hence option C is better than option A.

Why is A not correct? Shouldn't it be to capture and to understand?

Also is to not appropriate here since its there is a "their" after the and referring back to the employees?

Between A and C, I believe the two Infinitive phrases are intended to be in sequential order as opposed to the 'usual' two independent events.

This is quite evident from the meaning of original sentence.

Hence, Choice C

Let me try to explain once again. The mechanism is just to capture the voice ( probably by some feedback forms or questionnaires), NOT to understand the captured voice (i.e. interprete what is written on the feedback forms / questioannaire). The understanding part (i.e. interpreting the feedback forms / questionnaire) is by "you", not by the mechanism.

To be more clear if you wanted to set up a mechanism both to capture and to understand, then there has to be an A.I./ computer program buit in the mechanism that would interprete the feedback.

Correct answer must be (C) for correct parallelism usage...
