  • Overview
  • Resources


Managing human resources requires documentation and organization of employee information, education, work history, training, and performance data. In this activity, participants review the Personnel File Management Process which is responsible for managing all this information.


  • Personnel files provide an organized record of work-related information.
  • Documentation in the laboratory extends to human resource issues including performance, competency, education, training, etc.
  • The personnel files are confidential and require secure storage.


Can you:

  • Identify items that belong in a personnel file?
  • Suggest a process step where the record is created?
  • Create a process model for the Personnel File Management Process?
