Learn about our Editorial Process Updated on 01/16/21 Are you looking for Human Resources policy samples? Do you need sample checklists, procedures, forms, and examples of Human Resources and business tools to manage your workplace to create successful employees? These samples are provided for your personal use in your workplace, not for professional publications. Need an HR glossary? See the Human Resources Glossary of Terms. The terms provide a basic definition and much more about how you can implement the defined concept within your own organization. Consider taking a look at the glossary to assist you with defining concepts for your own organization. You may adapt these samples to your organization's needs. These Sample HR Policies Provide a Guide While every organization has different needs, different priorities, and different guidelines they need to guide employee behavior, these samples give you a base on which you can build the policies for your organization. Take a look to see the recommended sample policies that don't sap employee spirits and steal their lives and private time. These policies, procedures, and checklists successfully recognize the limits of providing employees proper guidance for appropriate behavior at work and draw a line between that and employee lives outside of the workplace.
