Do You Really Need That HR Policy?
A policy is essentially just a written statement of a workplace rule. But although there are certain policies that you actually do need to have in place (such as a policy your country requires your business to implement by law), there are plenty you probably don’t (like the ‘What Not to Do at 2:00pm on Friday Policy).
Maybe it’s just me, but don’t you think a workplace with fewer policies and less red tape seems more appealing?
If you’re not sure whether or not you need an official policy in place for something, then you might find it useful to follow these three check points:
You Might Need a Policy If:
- There is legislation in place that legally requires it
- There is significant confusion about a certain business process or way of working
- There are wide behavioural inconsistencies that are negatively impacting the business or work environment
Remember, that policies should be created for the masses, not for individuals – if Deborah from Accounts comes into work wearing odd socks one day and somebody else doesn’t like it, then that’s a matter you should treat as a one-off. You probably don’t need to spring into making the Odd Socks Policy!
