HR Policies, Procedures and Forms
Human Resources (HR) policies, procedures and forms establish a framework and set standards that guide how employees should conduct themselves as employees. This includes how employees perform their jobs, make decisions, interact with each other and manage the business operations of their employer.
Why you need HR Policies, Procedures and Forms
Straight-forward, clear and concise HR policies and procedures are important because they:
§ assist you to meet your legal obligations
§ are a proven way to help your managers and supervisors make consistent and reliable decisions
§ help to give each employee a clear understanding as to what you expect and allow.
Failing to implement them leaves your business open to legal challenges, grievances and lawsuits; especially if you inconsistently apply your HR policies and / or pay structure. Grievances and lawsuits lead to:
§ increased costs that affect your profits
§ increased turnover
§ negative morale.
Your business will avoid these problems if you implement HR policies, procedures and forms that are consistent and ensure your employees are treated equally across a variety of employment issues.
