It is not a legal requirement to have HR policies, however they are vital for the smooth running of a business.
Having HR policies available in an easily accessible Handbook will provide structure and guidance, helping staff understand what is expected of them. Clear and robust policies ensure employees know exactly where they stand in various situations and will help you treat your staff in a fair and consistent manner.
HR policies shouldn’t be static, they should be revised and added to regularly as your business evolves. It is important they are kept up to date reflecting the latest legislation changes.
Bespoke HR policies have the ability to shape the culture of a growing company, acting like a framework to govern employee relations and can be tailored to seamlessly fit with the preferred way of running your business.
