HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT - Writing Effective Policies & Procedures
This workshop investigates how to draft documents as well as policy, procedures, specifications and standards. It illustrates how these documents are created, and some of the main clauses that appear in them, using real examples wherever possible. It then considers methods to be used in drafting Policy and Procedures, and, in particular, how to avoid ambiguity and uncertainty. This is an area that generates a large number of errors, and the aim of the workshop is to reduce the frequency of such errors and associated disputes. Though it deals with documents written in the English language, it uses techniques which have wide application to many types of documents.
PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ABLE TO:
-Improve clarity of expression in documents
-Increase working knowledge of implications and potential problems with policy and procedures
-Improve ability to reduce the risks
-Those who are responsible for leading on, or implementing Policy and Procedures mechanisms in both the public and the private sector
-Those who have been allocated 'potential' or specific tasks in maintaining Policy and Procedures but have insufficient time to devote to the subject.
