Strategic policies and procedures that ensure compliance and enhance your employer brand  

HR policies and procedures are the foundation work required to align your workplace to relevant governing laws. Furthermore, HR policies and procedures can reflect the purpose of your organisation. A strategic policy or procedure is a living document designed with your business’ objectives in mind, as well as the needs of your employees and your workplace culture.

What we can help you with

When you are time or resource poor, lack the necessary inhouse expertise or simply need a sounding board – iHR Australia can help. We can:

  • Assess and audit the health and maturity of your HR function and identify gaps and opportunities in your current HR policies and procedures. This includes evaluating the alignment between your organisation’s policies and procedures and desired workplace culture.

  • Design (or rewrite) state-of-the-art policies and procedures to ensure that they are not only compliant with Australian employment law (i.e. the Fair Work Act, the WHS Code of Practice: Managing psychosocial hazards) but also align with your business’ objectives, are agile, flexible, tactical and must address the unique needs of your workforce.

  • Oversee (or assist with) the implementation of HR policies and procedures across your organisation. This includes advising on all change management considerations associated with a redesign or update of policies and procedures.

  • Coach, train and mentor executives, HR professionals and leaders on how to reinforce and monitor the effectiveness of HR policy and procedures.

How we do it

  • Audit and evaluate
