Company policies are living documents that should grow and adapt with your business.

The Importance of Reviewing Policies and Procedures

While the core elements of policies and procedures may stay the same the details should change according to industry standards, organizational needs, or legal requirements. In addition, policies should line up with the company’s mission, vision, and values.

By partnering with a Professional Employer Organization, such as Resourcing Edge, HR experts can help determine what policies and procedures will keep your company running smoothly and in compliance with employment laws. When you need updates, you can turn to your PEO for that expertise and assistance, so you can concentrate on the bottom line.

Why is it important to review policies and procedures?


When to review policies and procedures?

 

Employment laws and regulations change constantly. For example, in 2018 nearly every state made legal changes to employment laws (The Lunt Group). And that doesn’t even account for federal changes. Compliance teams such as HR Services at Resourcing Edge can help because they are aware of these changes and know what polices they impact.

How do you know when policies need to be updated?


By working with HR professionals at a PEO, you can make sure your training content matches the updated language and includes the correct procedures. In addition, a PEO can help conduct training on the new processes to ensure employees understand the new policies and procedures.

As you seek to keep your company’s policies current, let Resourcing Edge’s HR experts collaborate with your leadership team, make changes, and distribute new policies and train your employees.
