For growing business, having company policies in place is like having a good internal structure. Think about it this way, if your business is a house, the policies would be the walls. They are there to guide employees and the business about how to conduct themselves and sets the standard that the business expects from them. This in turn helps acheive customer satisfaction and protect your business against misconduct or bad behaviour.
We can also draft tailored policies to suit your business and industry requirements.
Without having a good company policy structure in place, you don't have the measures you need to identify and discipline conduct that is outside of what you would expect from your employees and your business. Terminating someone's employment without having this structure in place can expose you to adverse action claims or unlawful/ unfair dismissal. Having a clear and concise policy structure can assist you in showing that your employees knew about the standard of conduct that was expected of them when they joined the organisation.
Having company policies in place gives the business the structure and confidence that it needs to comply with work health and safety requirements, gives employees guidance as to how to conduct themselves at work and shows your customers that you are serious about your business.
