When things go wrong in the workplace, one of the first questions asked is, “What does the policy say?” If the policy isn’t written and communicated, you run the risk of jeopardizing the company’s reputation and profitability. The costs of badly written policies extend beyond financial results. Internally, non-existent or sloppy policies can mean the demise of employee engagement and productivity.

Consider policies as the rules within an organization. While this may seem boring or even constraining, rules can actually make the workplace run more smoothly. If you think about rules in a sports game, you realize that rules are downright important. And when they’re written, well-communicated, and easily accessible, then the workplace can better focus its attention on business priorities.

Unfortunately, too many organizations neglect to write down their policies. This is especially true of small and fast-growing companies. Policies seem too heavy or too formal. Conversely, policies that are outdated, appear to be too vague or too weak can create an environment of potential legal actions against the company.

This course is designed to provide you with the top 5 written company policies that you should have. The information can be used as a checklist for policies that you already have in place. As well, if you don’t yet have an employee handbook, this course will give you the 5 foundations policies to build upon.
