HR Policies and Procedures

HR Policies and Procedures services


Well-documented policies and procedures help staff to understand how an organisation ‘works’. They also minimise business and legal risks. iHR Australia can design and develop individual policies, procedures and handbooks specific to your organisation’s needs.

Why you need HR Policies and Procedures written for your organisation

Generic policies and procedures probably don’t reflect your organisation’s individual requirements, or could be ambiguous or out-of-date. HR policies and procedures establish and document your organisation’s expectations, standards and responsibilities. Clear procedures guide managers and employees through the practical application of policies. Well-documented policies and procedures are also tangible evidence that your organisation has taken reasonable steps to minimise business risks and unlawful practice or behaviour.
