Every Human Resources Department or person who is in charge of Human Resources should have an up-to-date Human resources Policies and Procedures Manual and their employees should have an Employee Handbook that explains all the company rules and regulations.
This book has 310 pages and includes many forms that companies require to run their Human Resources Department.
A policy is a statement about an issue in the workplace and says what the business intends to do about the issue. For policies to be successful in the workplace, all employees affected by them must know about and understand the policies.
A procedure sets out step-by-step instructions on how to deal with an activity in the workplace. Procedures need to be tested thoroughly before they are implemented. Employees involved in the procedure must clearly understand and be able to follow the written procedures.
