Key Sections of an Employee Handbook

I have been told that an effective employee handbook is important for an organization to manage staff and enable leaders to provide effective leadership. What are the key sections and activities found in an effective employee handbook?

Contents of Employee Handbook

Hi Udochi, I have found useful information about employee handbooks by conducting an internet search to find examples used by other organizations. Typically, an employee handbook is based on the organization's needs.
An effective employee handbook would focus on HR policies, such as:
- Employee orientation,
- Recruitment and staffing,
- Labour relations,
- Compensation and benefits,
- Staff development,
- Occupational health,
- Performance evaluation,
- Etc.
You also need to identify the purpose of the policy, the owner of the policy, and the group covered. Please react if you need further clarification.
