HR Policies & Procedures
HR Policies and Procedures in your Organisation
Many of the policies and procedures that we recommend are not only practical from a management view, but also imperative by law. For example, every business that employs staff must issue an employment contract within the first 2 months of employment. Failure to do so could mean the employer incurring a significant fine. In addition to the contract, we would strongly recommend issuing a staff handbook to include all relevant HR policies and procedures, and to set out the company's expectations.
It is important that your business includes the statutory policies and procedures for the following; maternity, paternity, parental leave, flexible working, adoption, disciplinary and grievances as well as best practice policies like social networking, alcohol and drugs, absence management, etc. Our goal is to help you communicate what is required to your staff to avoid any potential conflict.
We believe that policies and procedures can be that crucial link between your business goals and the day to day duties of your employee. We will create bespoke policies that are: accurate in terms of employment law, easy to read, and that communicate your expectations.
