Policies & Procedures
Consistency in approach and standards, compliance and enhanced accountability for all
Unlocking efficiency and performance: the true value of clear policies and procedures
As an organisation and an employer, developing and maintaining up-to-date, clear policies and procedures ensures a meeting of minds between the employer and employee. Start-up businesses or those with few employees may be reluctant to implement these practices due to the size of their organisation and limited resources. However, policies and procedures provide a clear roadmap for the business’s day-to-day operations.
Is there a difference between the two?
Policies set parameters for decision-making, leaving room for flexibility. Policies explain the ‘why’ behind certain actions which are either encouraged or must be complied with. On the other hand, procedures set out the ‘how’, providing clear instructions for both routine and complex tasks.
Do you need support with developing policies and procedures in respect of:
- compliance with Fair Work legislation
- performance appraisals
- how employees should exit an organisation whether through dismissal or other means
- workplace harassment
- promotions, remuneration packages and other non-financial incentives or benefits?
