Hi, in yesterdays webinar it ws mentiod that policies could be cut down to half a dozen? could I please ask what these are? Thanks
To add to Emma’s query, we need to have specific, old fashioned policies, linked to our clients (Banks) and our attestations (PCI DSS, SOC1,2,3, etc.) available and signed by employees, any advice on how to juggle this and move away from the Paternal policy / nanny state approach and maintain compliance?
This would be our example of what you need in terms of policies within your organisation (you may have to consider other challenges such as regulators or client requirements etc..that are not in your control).
Policies: Keep policies stripped back to best practice and don’t be tempted to add in company specific info such as ‘A HR person will be present etc.’
– Flex working (for contract changes only)
– Family leave – Maternity/Paternity/adoption etc.
– Data Protection (or put in contract)
– Confidentiality (or put in contract)
– Health & Safety
Statements not policies: Consider creating the following as statements rather than policies
– Time off/taking holiday
– D&I/equal ops
– Benefits – reward, career development, learning
– Ways of working – values, dress code, performance management etc.
Take a look at this example of a Culture Handbook from a company called Thrive Tribe to give you some ideas.
As a toolkit to help your managers with reward, coaching, onboarding etc, consider using this guide or adapt it to fit your needs.
We hope this helps.
