HR Policies & Procedures

Why policies are important

Policies serve several important functions:

  • Communicate values and expectations for how things are done at your organization
  • Keep the organization in compliance with legislation and provide protection against employment claims
  • Document and implement best practices appropriate to the organization
  • Support consistent treatment of staff, fairness and transparency
  • Help management to make decisions that are consistent, uniform and predictable
  • Protect individuals and the organization from the pressures of expediency

Steps in Policy Development
Your workplace is unique and therefore you may need to develop policies very specific to your organization and type of work, for which there are no templates or benchmarks. Typically, policy development will follow the following steps:

  • Step 1: Establish need for a policy
  • Step 2: Develop policy content
  • Step 3: Draft the policy
  • Step 4: Write the procedure
  • Step 5: Review of the policy by key parties
  • Step 6: Approve the policy
  • Step 7: Implement the policy
  • Step 8: Policy review and update
  • Step 9: Communication of changes to the policy
