Policies & Procedures

We help you understand the role of policies, procedures and guidelines within your company and provide useful and tailored policies as needed. We then assist you to roll them out successfully in your company. You are then able to amend them from time to time without getting caught up in legal challenges. We also provide advice on how to have just the right amount of procedure without confusing your employees.

Effective people policies cover all aspects of your business that are important to you and to your employees. They increase clarity of communication when created and implemented correctly.

  • Are you missing written policies or procedures for important processes or addressing risks in your business?
  • Are your staff asking questions about the same things time and time again?
  • Is your Policy Manual or Staff Handbook out of date?
  • Does your Policy Manual conflict with your Employment Agreement in some places?


If you have answered “yes” to any of these questions, you should consider this service.

Case Study

One client of ours wanted to make sure their employees had a clear understanding of certain key processes such as timesheets and health and safety, but were struggling with a low level of literacy amongst their staff. We provided a solution by creating a handbook that had a significant amount of pictorial explanations of the processes.
