Why do I need policies?
Without policies, it’s impossible for your employees to know where the parameters are in your organisation or what their entitlements are……whether it’s holiday, maternity leave or absence.
Some information can be detailed in the contract but more is needed, especially for more complicated processes like long term sickness absence or shared parental leave.
By giving your employees clear guidance, they will understand what is expected of them….but equally, and many times more importantly, what will happen if they don’t follow them. Without clear, up-to-date policies you as an organisation can be open to complex people issues which take a lot of time and effort to resolve and can even result in a tribunal case.
