Policy and Practice Development

Successful HR policies and practices strategy must do more than communicate the “rules.” Our strategy must recognize our changing work world and address employees’ needs for flexibility.

 

The Importance of Strategy in HR Policies & Practices 

It’s our nature test limits and push boundaries.  So it comes as no surprise that we need guidelines and work rules in our companies. Policies provide consistency and clarity about what is expected of us and what we can expect from the company.

But too many policies and work rules don’t create a work environment that is attractive to highly motivated, creative and productive employees.  And those are the kind of employees we want to attract, right?

On the other hand, loosely defined policies become subjective and open to interpretation. The result of such ambiguity is often litigation.  It takes time and money to deal with productivity-draining employee issues, leaving you with less time to deal with core business matters. 

It is worth the investment to strategically design company policies and practices that improve the way your employees interact as well as minimize the personnel obstacles.  But don’t stop there.  Successful HR policies and practices strategy must do more than communicate the “rules.” Our strategy must recognize, value and address employees’ needs. If we want to retain our high performers, we have to think outside of the proverbial “box” to address our employee’s changing needs.
