Why Staying Up to Date Matters

Let’s be honest: the last few years have been rough for business owners, and it’s no surprise that there are a few details that have fallen by the wayside. It can be tempting to let your HR policies and procedures fall into this category, especially if you haven’t encountered any pressing issues that have demanded immediate attention. The danger with this practice, however, is that you leave yourself open to serious problems when an issue does arise (and, unfortunately, something always will). Constantly reviewing your policies keeps you compliant with evolving legislation, empowers your team to be protected when it matters most, and gives you a clear path forward in even the most ambiguous situations.

Patience is Key

As much as it would be ideal to be able to go through everything in one go, the more realistic approach is to prepare to review the various aspects of your HR policies in stages. Breaking things into groups makes it easier to pay attention to the finer details (hint: you DON’T want to miss those) and to focus on any areas that might be lacking or missing altogether! Common areas that need refinement routinely include reviewing compensation and benefits for team members, updating policies for sick leave and vacation allotment, establishing clear hierarchies for tasks and responsibilities between individuals/teams, refining disciplinary measures, and implementing dedicated leadership training to better equip executive team members with the skills they need to guide and inspire.

Streamlined Documentation

If there’s one thing going back and forth from WFH to the office has taught business and organization leaders, it’s that relying purely on paper documentation for your HR protocols isn’t viable anymore. While you still want to ensure you have physical copies of contracts, standards and related documents, day-to-day tasks are much simpler when you consolidated access to policies and related documents via online resources. Whether you’re purely in the office, manage a hybrid model, or have made the full-time shift to working from home, having readily accessible resources is key and ensures everyone is able to reach the assets they need when it counts.


Once you’ve had a chance to review your procedures and update things accordingly, you must make sure everyone is on the same page. Ensure that all team members are advised of any changes when they take effect and any other core details that could affect their work. Human Resources should always be a transparent field and conducted as objectively as possible to keep things fair for everyone.
