There are many areas of running and managing an organisation that cause employees a little headache, particularly when trying to keep up with all the relevant changes that take place in both legislation and best practise. One such area that can be a nightmare for businesses to keep on top of is HR. It’s certainly a lot easier when you have a HR Cheltenham company to back you up.
HR encompasses everything from recruiting to the success and training of workers and everything else you can think of in between. The policies and procedures often put in place to represent the applicable laws and to protect companies and workers from lawsuits are one of the backbones of HR. Many people assume that only larger businesses and those that may work in high-risk areas such as manufacturing need policies and procedures. There are however a range of policies that businesses of any size can ensure that they have in place, with many of them being statutory.
Equal Opportunity-Equal opportunities strategies ensure that all workers are treated fairly and equally, and this can include the way applicants are treated during the process of recruitment and selection. This policy would apply to and contribute to other regulations, including the recruitment policy, the policy of discrimination and any current pay and maternity and paternity policies.
Capability and Disciplinary-This is one policy that no one likes to use, but it is incredibly important that it is put in place not only to help and protect workers or who do not work at their best, but also to protect the business and have a fixed process that should be followed in disciplinary terms in the event of having to deal with an employee.
