WHAT IS A COMPANY POLICY MANUAL?

A Company Policies and Procedures Manual is a document used to give staff (and management) clear guidelines to help them understand who you are, and how you do business.

Typically this document is given to new staff when they start with your business as part of their induction or even prior to their first day. When we implement these into a clients business, we will recommend having a new hire checklist, and having the new hire sign and acknowledge that they have read and understood all areas in the policies and procedures manual.

WHY DO I NEED A COMPANY POLICIES AND PROCEDURES MANUAL?

Realistically, every business that employs staff should have a company policies and procedures manual in place. Why? Firstly, if you don't have one, it is likely you don't have some, if not all of these policies in place. You may not even have considered some of them, so a company guide like this gives you clarity into the basic standards you should have in your office. It gives staff the clarity they need to do things your way. The simple principle of - you can't do what you don't know comes into play here.

The manual itself is a simple way of keeping everything in one place. Why have 100 policies in different documents spread over different drives, when you can have them all in one place. It also makes it easier to update (we recommend a 6 monthly or 12 monthly review and update of the document).

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HAVING COMPANY POLICIES AND PROCEDURES?

There are many benefits to having a company policies manual, and here are some:

  1. Give employees clarity on standards of behaviour and performance

  2. Allows you to treat all employees equally and sets a minimum standard for staff no matter what their role title

  3. Helps staff make decisions simply and quickly

  4. Makes onboarding easy and can act as an onboarding tool

  5. Reduces business risk and improves security

  6. Reduces HR downtime educating new staff on a number of principles

  7. Policies benefit employers if they have an unfair dismissal claim occur

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON'T HAVE A COMPANY POLICIES AND PROCEDURES MANUAL TEMPLATE?

If you want to attract and retain the best staff, you need a policies and procedures manual. By not having one you risk looking unprofessional to staff and like a business that hasn't considered the basics. You also open yourself up to risk by having people operating in their own way, rather than adhering to the optimal permitted way.

The information is not legal, financial or general advice.
The information, guides, templates, forms, instructions, articles, tips and comments provided in and through docushop.com.au is not legal, financial or general business advice, but is and includes general information / forms on issues often encountered, and about business areas designed to help docushop users, members and subscribers address their own business needs. Legal, financial or general business information, including tips, general forms, instructions, comments, and templates, no matter how seemingly customized to conform to the laws of your state, is not the same as legal, financial or general business advice, which may be the specific application of laws by lawyers licensed to practice law in your state to the specific circumstances and needs of individuals and entities. Some states have highly specific laws, and our information / forms may not take those specific laws into consideration. docushop is not a law firm and the employees and contractors (including attorneys, if any) of docushop are not acting as your attorneys, and none of them are a substitute for the advice of your own attorney or law firm licensed to practice law in your state. The employees or contractors of docushop who wrote or modified any form, instructions, tips, comments, templates and guides, are NOT providing legal or any other kind of advice, are not creating or entering into an Attorney-Client relationship, and were most likely NOT prepared or reviewed by an attorney licensed to practice law in your state, and, therefore, could not provide you with advice even if they or docushop wanted to.

Even though we take every reasonable effort to attempt to make sure our information / forms are accurate, up to date, and useful, we recommend that you consult the relevant specialist (lawyer, financial advisor, HR specialist etc) licensed to practice in your state if you want professional assurance that our information, forms, instructions, tips, comments, templates and guides, and your interpretation of it or them, and the information and input that you provide, is appropriate to your particular situation.

These completed or generated documents are no more than self-help forms where you would fill in the information or make the choices as if they were forms with blanks to be completed. docushop is not applying the principles of the laws of your state, including those based upon the information you provide or the choices you make. docushop does nothing more than allow you to pick and choose among various choices or provisions. It is your responsibility to get the completion of the document right.

Note: You should have carefully read and considered the instructions, tips, comments, templates and guides. If you did not you should go back and complete the process again. You must review the completed document to make sure that it meets your specific circumstances and requirements, and the particular laws of your state. docushop does not review your completed document, including for consistency, spelling errors, or any reason at all. You (or your attorney) may want to make additional modifications to meet your specific needs and the laws of your state.

You may want to consider whether you need or should seek financial, legal or licensed third party advice for your specific problem or issue, or if your specific problem or issue is or may be too complex to be addressed by our information or forms, you should consult a licensed professional in your area. You may also consider having an attorney licensed in your area review the document you completed so as to provide you with legal guidance and advice.
