HR Policies

Why should I have policies?

An important part of any business is having relevant Employment Policies. By providing clear guidance, your employees understand what is expected of them and also what will happen if they don’t adhere to them. We don’t just provide off the shelf solutions. We can help you establish your HR policies so that they both meet legal requirements and also fit the needs of your business.

Which policies do I need to have?

ACAS recommend that you have the following policies in place:

  • Adoption leave
  • Anti-harassment and bullying
  • Discipline
  • Employee Code of Conduct
  • Equality and Diversity
  • Grievance
  • Flexible Working
  • Maternity leave
  • Parental leave
  • Paternity leave
  • Redundancy
  • Shared Parental Leave
  • Sickness Absence
  • Time off for Dependents
  • Whistleblowing

What about Company handbooks?

If you prefer to have all your policies and other useful information in one place, you could create a Company handbook. This can be one document held centrally that everyone can access. Alternatively, you can have a more concise Company handbook with links to more detailed policies. That way employees can go into more detail should they need it. This solution works well when you send the Company handbook out with new contracts.

How can Cornerstone Resources help me with my policies?

At Cornerstone Resources, we understand that our clients have competing demands on their budget. That’s why we provide you with 2 options:

  • Engage Cornerstone Resources to create bespoke policies or a company handbook for you based on your own ways of working. We have worked with clients to create policies that fit their culture from a traditional rules based style to a question and answer style document. A standard handbook is available for £299 + VAT.
  • Buy a template pack of policies that you can then amend for a fixed fee of £99 + VAT.
Both options will give you legally compliant documents that you can share with your employees.
For help developing policies or to order your template pack contact us today! You can email us by clicking the below button and we will come back to you. Alternatively, call Rob on 07494 161169 or Nicci on 07908 875146 for more details of how we can help you.
