Workplace Policies

What does workplace policies refer to?

Workplace policies are rules and procedures that are established to govern the behavior of employees within an organization. These can address health and safety protocols, professional standards, rules around discrimination and harassment, attendance and leave guidelines, technology guidelines, and data protection rules.

These policies ensure that all employees know how to act in line with company values. For example, in a retail environment, they might specify customer service standards including how to greet customers and handle complaints. This could involve specific phrases, tone of voice, and body language guidelines.

When creating workplace policies, you should also outline what happens if an employee fails to follow the rules. For example, this could include cases where verbal warnings and termination may occur. This encourages accountability by showing how serious the organization is about adherence to its policies.

You can send workplace policies over to new hires as part of an onboarding package through an HR solution such as Multiplier. This helps you create a great first impression and easy access to all important information — something that is especially useful in remote work environments as the online platform ensures that employees working from different locations are all following the same regulations.
