Employment Policies

Principles of Policy Creation & Implementation


"Policies should be composed in a manner that provides object clarity on the process by which Human Capitol will achieve the defining mission of the organization. If policies are found to impede or obstruct that basic purpose they must be at a minimum reviewed and filtered through the organization's mission and vision so that alone each has merit but when combined have purpose."
