HR Policies

What is a Policy

A policy is a predetermined course of action

established as a guide toward accepted objectives

and strategies of the organization.

A vision is formulated, business processes are

analyzed, and policy and procedure systems to

support the vision are born. As policies

and procedures are written, approved,

published, and implemented, the company’s

vision is articulated.


Policy manuals are developed to help staff and

management teams run the organization. In best use

situations, policies play a strategic role in an

organization. They are developed in light of the

mission and objectives of the company and they

become the media by which management’s plans,

rules, intents, and business processes become

documented and communicated to all staff. Carefully

drafted and standardized policies and procedures save the

company countless hours of management time. The consistent

use and interpretation of such policies, in an evenhanded and fair

manner, reduces management's concern about legal issues

becoming legal problems.

Connection between Mission and Policy

Without policies boundaries and baselines related to the

company’s missions and objectives would not exist.

When developing your policies, you should start with

your mission and objectives. A mission statement should

be a clear statement about who your company is trying

to serve. It should be a cultural reflection of the values,

beliefs, and philosophy of the organization. It should be

very brief and very clear so that everyone in the

organization can understand it and so that objectives are

seen clearly as steps to achieving the mission.

Objectives are like goals; they direct the staff’s attention to

important factors in running the organization and help

define unique ways to enhance performance of

individuals and the organization as a whole.


How to Start Creating Your Policy Manual

Policies initially are derived from an understanding of core business

practices. They also may emanate from a need to control

operations and therefore a good understanding of how the

business functions is necessary as a first step in developing

good polices. policy creation is a form of research. Research is

an ongoing aspect of keeping polices up-to-date and maintaining

a comprehensive policy manual. The policy manual should be a

“living document” – very much dynamic – subject to change.

Existing policies need to be expanded, supplemented, and

revised as business conditions change, as business process

reengineering takes place, as an organization downsizes, and as

quality improvement initiatives are implemented.

Various Types of Policies

 Employment Policies

These are the policies that guide hiring practices, orientation of new employees,

compliance with employment laws, and confidentiality.

 Employment Status & Records

These are the policies that define such issues as employment classifications,

access to personnel files and guidance on how background checks and

performance reviews are to be performed.

Employee Benefits

These are policies that explain employee benefits such as insurance, vacations,

holidays, leave, and employee reimbursements.

 Payroll

These are policies that are related to salary and wage administration including

deductions, pay advances, and time keeping.

Various Types of Policies

These policies are quite varied and their purpose range from

defining certain work arrangements such as flex time and

telecommuting to offering guidelines on the use of company

assets and record retention.

 Employee Conduct

These policies are guidelines that control employer behavior and

conduct on the job. The mainstay of this section is a code of

conduct but also important are policies regarding substance

abuse, smoking, harassment, and workplace violence.

 E-Policies

These policies guide staff in the use of the organization’s

information technology. Policies defining acceptable and

prohibited activities and use of e-mail and the Internet make up a

majority of these policies
