Policies and Procedures

Why they’re important and how we can help

Why you need Policies and Procedures in your business

Policies and procedures are a necessary part of any business, they provide direction to employees and govern the rights of both the employee and employer.

HR Policies and procedures set guidelines on a series of issues that may be faced in the workplace and provide managers and employees with a guide on how those issues should be handled.

The absence of structure invites chaos.

Countries that have strictly enforced road rules can be clearly told apart from those that don’t, by just spending a few minutes in heavy traffic – I mean have you ever traveled in Bali?

Schools with upheld boundaries and values result in demonstrable behavioural differences from those that don’t. It, therefore, stands to reason that having up to date, relevant and complaint policies and procedures in your workplace is critical – unless of course chaos is your preferred style.

Policies and procedures set the guidelines and parameters for how your business operates.

Without well developed and effectively communicated policies and procedures, there are no solid rules, and when there are no rules, people create their own.

At Fresh HR Insights, we have helped many businesses develop and implement policies and procedures that are tailored to their business.

The handbooks and templates we have available come from over 10 years of “hands-on” experience in the HR environment. With hundreds if not thousands of policies and procedures for businesses across a variety of different industries as well as a variety of different business sizes available. Ranging from office policies and procedures right through to complete employee manuals.

You probably have a bunch of questions right now:

  • Where do we start and what should we include in a policy or procedure handbook?
  • What handbook do we need?
  • I am no good at setting out workplace policies let alone procedures – what happens if I miss some important information?
  • I know nothing about workplace Legislation and Fair Work Compliance – does that matter?
  • When am I going to find the time to do this?

And that is just the tip of the iceberg…

You may have more questions and that’s fine because the process makes sure everything you’re thinking about, and others you haven’t even considered, are covered. We can help with them all.

Don’t take my word for it though…

The immediate peace of mind knowing that we had up to date and relevant employment contracts and policies took a lot of stress off me. I could sleep soundly at night again.
