It’s difficult to identify a comprehensive list of HR policies that employers should introduce since HR policy needs often vary widely between organisations… There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to designing effective HR policies; their content should be based on the unique needs and characteristics of the organisation and its workforce. Rather than following a ‘best practice’ approach which may be unsuitable for the diverse range of organisational contexts, a focus on why there’s a need for a particular policy, and how it’s aligned with the business strategy, allows an appropriate policy to be implemented for the particular context. HR practitioners need strong professional judgement to create policies that promote two-way relationships between their people and the organisation.
It can be helpful to consider the type of policies that may be relevant to the organisation during the course of the employment life cycle: beginning employment, during employment and leaving employment..
An organisation might have a distinct policy setting out its criteria for selection, together with other relevant policies for new joiners (such as induction). Other examples of policies in this area might be referral payment (for existing employees who recommend friends).
Policies might address areas such as how jobs are graded and how performance is rewarded; together with provisions for aspects of compensation packages, such as pensions/additional voluntary contributions and other benefits and allowances.
Learning and development
Issues that might be covered by policies in this area would include courses and secondment opportunities, talent development, payment of professional fees and so on.
Health, safety and well-being
Policies might cover a disparate range of topics from absence and employee assistance programmes to handling hazardous materials.
Employee relations and general HR issues
As well as disciplinary and grievance policies, examples include: time off and leave for trade union activities, holidays, secondment, volunteering, parental or caring duties (such as maternity or paternity leave), communication, involvement and other employee behaviors, including employee voice and harassment and bullying.
Other policies that organisations may want to consider include diverse areas related to the wider business needs (for example corporate responsibility or anti-bribery measures) or those associated with emerging technology and new ways of working (the use of social networking sites, for instance).
Equality and diversity runs through all aspects of an organisation’s policies. Discrimination on many personal characteristics, such as gender or race, is unlawful at all stages of the employment life cycle, while managing inclusion and valuing diversity is central to good people management and makes good business sense. Good practice suggests that an overarching equality and diversity policy should expressly inform the organisation’s vision and values. The issue might then also be incorporated into many other policies (for example, recruitment and selection and reward).
In some cases HR policies may need to extend beyond the organisation, for example in partnering arrangements such as joint ventures, outsourcing, strategic alliances or public-private sector commissioning models. It’s advisable to consider where common policies may need to be applied or reviewed in light of new organisational arrangements.
We will write HR Policies based on your business for £100 per policy.
