HR policies … We love them because they keep us efficient and legal. And we “less than love them” for all the work they bring
Because each policy is the official position of the company and may be seen as such in court, virtually every word is critical. Policies have to be researched, drafted, reviewed by several layers of management, and then blessed by company legal counsel. You may have to repeat the process over and over. And you can multiply that by the number of written policies you have. Some companies have hundreds!
There’s a better choice. Let us write your policies in advance. Then either lightly revise them for your specifics or use them as is.
We believe that SmartPolicies is, without a doubt, the most complete prewritten HR policy program on CD-ROM you can find anywhere.
With its roots in BLR’s classic Encyclopedia of Prewritten Personnel Policies (The famous “Green Book”), the program encompasses more than 350 expertly-written policies, alphabetically arranged for easy access.
Recognizing that companies differ in style and strictness of approach, we include up to three model policies for each topic, written as “strict,” “standard”, and “progressive.” Just choose the style that best expresses your company’s philosophy.
Whichever policy you choose, there’s no easier format than CD-ROM to find and make use of it. Just pop the disk into any PC, and the program comes right up. Click the tab to access the policies, and they open and work just like your Internet browser. Want to customize? Simply save as a Word document as you would any letter or memo and make your changes. When you’re done, it prints right out.
Or even simpler, use the policy as it is. They’re written to fit into almost any situation and look like they originated there.
Policies are most effective when they’re organized into a usable manual, communicated properly and reviewed periodically. That’s why SmartPolicies comes with a special section on developing your policy program, including these key topics:
With SmartPolicies, you receive everything you need to create, publish, and keep vital a complete policy program … in minimal time and with minimal effort, but with maximum quality.
