HR policies and procedures are critical to the success of your business and the well-being of your employees.
Policies are documented guidelines that establish rules and codes of conduct within your business. These guidelines are often put in place to protect your employees and your business. On the other hand, procedures are instructions that document how tasks should be performed; they help transform your objective into action items.
Both are necessary for your business, and document management can help support these systems.
The Importance of Compliance
Human Resource policies and procedures ensure legal compliance. They are used to protect your company from legal action. If your policies and procedures are not created, reviewed, revised, kept current or audited, you leave yourself vulnerable and your company at risk. A document management system can help keep these procedures and policies organized, helping ensure you remain protected and compliant.
Pairing DM and HR for Success
A secure, centralized DM system is one of the best solutions for your HR department. This main repository can store all of your HR documents, including templates, versions, mater documents, and achieved items for easy retrieval when needed.
Since laws and legal guidelines change often, DM can help you keep track of changes and different versions of employee policies. Plus, you can set notifications to remind you when you review and revise documents and procedures.
Document management will help you keep policies and procedures up-to-date, ensuring all stakeholders are informed and keep abreast of any new or updated policies, procedures, or guidelines.
