Company policies and procedures

Documenting the rules of your business

As your business grows, you’ll need company policies and procedures in place to communicate the rules of your organisation to employees.​

We will tailor these for you so that as each new hire comes onboard, your procedures clearly communicate how your business operates and your company policies set out expectations for behaviour.

A lack of company policies can expose your business to high-risk legal situations with employees. So, it’s vital to ensure that your procedures are legally compliant, and your expectations are officially documented and well communicated to your workforce.

There are many different types of policies that you might want to implement for your business. We are happy to explain the differences and walk you through the process from start to end.

Discrimination – promoting equality and diversity

Everyone in your business has a legal right to be protected from any form of discrimination. Creating an environment where everyone is valued and treated equally will bring huge benefits to the business.

Whether making a reasonable adjustment to cater for a disability, looking after a pregnant employee or managing cultural differences, we can help.

Discrimination claims have unlimited fines and require no length of service, so getting the right policies in place is important.

Family friendly policies – Implementing flexible working

Supporting new parents in taking the appropriate time off and ensuring they aren’t forgotten isn’t just compassionate, it’s a minimum legal requirement.

Considering flexible options for employees with family commitments can help you keep great skills and experience within your company.

But if an employee is looking for an arrangement that might disadvantage your business, it can be difficult to know where to draw the boundaries.

The HR Dept can help you find your way through questions relating to maternity, paternity and adoption.

Other company policy examples include stress in the workplace, anti-harassment, driving or operating a company vehicle, working alone, CSR, environmental, sickness and attendance, performance and capability.
