Do we need a set of policies and procedures?

Every business – no matter the size or in which industry it operates in, should have well-documented and comprehensive workplace policies and procedures. A workplace policy is a set of rules and principles that aims to guide employees in how to behave in the workplace. You can have them in place for numerous different issues – recruitment and selection, remuneration and benefits, leave, travelling, study support, use of business tools and equipment, performance,  harassment, internet use, health and safety and social media are just a few.

Having well-developed policies and procedures can provide the following benefits to your workplace:

  • They help employees know what is expected of them with respect to standards of behaviour and performance.
  • They set out rules and guidelines for decision-making in routine situations to minimise repetitive and timewasting questioning.
  • They help you to adopt a consistent and clear response across the company to continually refer to situations involving employee interaction.
  • They allow you to demonstrate good faith that employees will be treated fairly and equally.
  • They allow you to have an accepted method of dealing with complaints and misunderstandings to avoid favouritism.
  • They set a framework for delegation of decision-making and to empower employees to exercise autonomy in their duties.
  • They provide a means of communicating information to new employees.
  • They offer you protection from breaches of employment legislation, such as equal opportunity laws.

But remember: Having workplace policies and procedures is only valuable if you make sure they are properly developed, deals with your environment, employees are trained, and are properly implemented and monitored.
