Developing Workplace Policies

“A policy is a broad statement that reflects an organization’s philosophy, objectives, or
standards concerning a particular set of management or employee activities. Policies
reflect the employer’s employee relations strategy. They are general in nature and are
expressed through more specific procedures and work rules.”
There are nine steps involved with developing workplace policies.

1. Identify the need for a policy.
2. Identify who will take the lead responsibility for this policy development.
3. Gather information.
4. Draft the policy.
5. Consult with stakeholders.
6. Finalize and approve the policy.
7. Consider whether procedures will be required to implement the policy.
8. Implement the policy.
9. Monitor its success, and review and revise if necessary.
