About this Episode

In today’s episode, Bob’Joyce discuss seemingly banal topic of writing HR policy. We think writing HR policy is anything but banal, and essential to an organization’s health. Put bluntly, many organizations don’t put enough focus on writing good HR policy.

We rift on policies that:

• Support your particular business (what matters around here)
• Set the tone and behavior to support the culture.
• Are a guide for leaders as they demonstrate day-to-day behavior.
• Are not generic (read boilerplate). It should be tailored for your business.
• Are clear about what is forbidden without feeling punitive or legalistic.
• A 3rd grader can understand.

So come on in. Grab a snack. Welcome!
