HR Policies provide guidelines on how key aspects of people management should be handled. The aim is to ensure that any HR issues are dealt with consistently in accordance with the values of the organization in line with certain defined principles.
Formal HR policies can be used in induction, team leader and management training to help participants understand the philosophies and values of the organization and how they are expected to behave within that context.
The overall HR policy defines how the organization fulfils its social responsibilities to its employees and sets out its attitudes towards them.
The most common areas in which specific HR policies exist are age and employment, AIDS, bullying, discipline, emails and the internet, employee development, employee relations, employee voice, employment, equal opportunity, grievances, health and safety, managing diversity, promotion, redundancy, reward, sexual harassment, substance abuse and work-life balance.
We assist organizations to implement policies fairly and consistently.
