Purpose of the HR Manual
The human resources policies and procedures manual aims to assist employees in implementing a company policies and procedures consistently. The Human Resources Department will ensure that all employees understand the operational implications of the policies and procedures. All employees will be fully briefed with the details of the policies; department managers should take appropriate time to ensure they are implemented within their own department.
