Manual on Human Resources
The overall objective of this HR Manual is to provide cooperative leaders, managers, and staff with guidelines and steps in writing and implementing HR processes and plans. Effective HR policies and procedures reflect the philosophy of the cooperative, especially if they are clearly written and properly implemented. This can be achieved if the implementors would be able to thoroughly understand and properly communicate them to the employees. The written manual is important to all cooperatives. As cooperatives mature, and longtime directors and employees retire, many of the practices and systems may change because of new management. However, with the guidance of the manual, successors will be guided on how to effectively and strategically run HR.
