    Hi all, in yesterdays meet and point was raised about people policies, and someone mentioned they have them down to half a dozen? I just wondered if anyone could share what those half a dozen were?

    Hi Emma,

    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.’

    –        Grievance

    –        Disciplinary

    –        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

    –        Absence

    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.

    –        Social

    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.

    Best wishes,

    Disruptive HR Team

    Hi Emma (bit late to this!)

    We abolished all our policies last year. We have 4 principles – Disciplinary, Grievance, Performance and Attendance. They are very short. The rest are covered in 1 pagers (2 max) which we call How We Operate. Essentially we provide the framework and our managers/people are trusted to be adults. So far, it’s worked really well.

    @Maggie Fox – we’re really interested in doing something similar in relation to our policies; would you be happy to share an example and/or did you use an external provider to produce these that you would recommend? Thanks!

    Hi Maggie, I too would love to see an example if you don’t mind.  We recognise the need and want to change our policies and offer guidance rather than a 125 handbook.  Thank you for your help, my email is rachel.brown@atpi.com
