All good organizational improvements come with updates to policy and all successful organizations have strong policy. Policy is not as scary as everyone thinks; in fact, policy is pretty straightforward. Policy should do two things, either it matches current practice and applicable legislative requirements OR it outlines what the organization WANTS practice to look like.
If it does not do either of these two things, your policy is outdated and useless.
Policy does not have to be complicated (unless it is a complicated subject) and it does not have to be long. Policy DOES have to be clear, accurate and usable. As the guiding principles of your organization, policy is a direct reflection of who you are and what is expected. How can you expect your employees to be successful, hard working and purposeful if they do not know what is expected of them.
If there are only a handful of employees that have seen the policy manual, let alone read it, your organization is running blind.
AERRIS will do a complete assessment of your organization`s policy manual as part of a comprehensive Organizational Assessment or as an independent exercise. Either way, an updated policy manual that is a true reflection of your organization is your first step towards greater efficiency, purpose and teamwork.
