What Are Human Resource Policies? What Are Personnel Forms? What Are Personnel Policies And Procedures?

Human Resource Policies can generally be defined as guidelines from your organization to which you would like your employees to adhere. Human Resource Procedures can generally be defined as the methods for doing or handling specific activities.

Why Have HR Policies And Procedures?

Human Resource policies and procedures help your employees and contractors understand exactly how you want things done. While things like not harassing co-workers seems intuitive, your organization's preference for handling returns, for instance, is not.

In these examples, your anti-harassment policy might not only state not to do it, but include procedures for reporting if you see someone actually doing it. Re handling returns, some items might be fully refundable, others not. Either way, a policy or a form helps create consistency while often maximizing productivity or profitability.

Specifically, HR Policies and Procedures help you to:
    HR personnel records
  • Prevent legal problems
  • Avoid mistakes that can lead to liability
  • Streamline procedures
  • Standardize practices
  • Save time!
What Should I Keep In A Personnel File?

  • The job description for the position
  • The job application
  • Resume (if provided)
  • Your offer of employment
