Keys to Writing a Human Resources Manual
Many small businesses around the country need direction in human resources management. Small businesses generally are not large enough to hire their own Human Resources Manager, but are still in need of human resource information and tools. In some cases with smaller companies, this responsibility is the burden of the owner, a “promoted” staff member who is not trained in Human Resources or in a worst case scenario, no one.
