HR Documentation

HR Documentation

Attracting and retaining the best available employees takes a lot of effort. One area that employers often neglect is their documentation. Whether it be because of money or time constraints, many employers don't pay this area any attention and come off looking like they don't have their act together.

We come across many employers with no employee agreements or written policies and procedures. This is maximising risk in a business.By having proper documentation you can back up decisions made in your people management like terminating an employee for instance.

Keep it professional and up to date and you can keep your employees happy and your business on track.

Employee Policy and Procedures

If you hire any amount of people you need written guidelines around behaviour and performance. An employer can be held liable for the actions of their employees while on the job, so it's a big risk not to do everything you can to educate employees about the consequences of their actions. 

Employment Agreements

It is a brave employer these days who hires new people without a written employment agreement. Employees have more access to information about their workplace rights than ever before, so it is prudent for employers to have their ducks in a row when it comes to signing employees on. Plus it makes you look professional!


HR Forms and Templates

When you are recruiting for new employees you are also competing against other employers for the best candidates. So why not stand out from the others with professional looking forms and templates - such as an application form or interview questionnaire? First impressions count and can you afford not to do that?


If you are applying for jobs and not getting any interviews then it's more than likely your resume is not up to the task. Recruiters look through dozens of resumes a day and yours needs to stand out. So does it?
