Policies & Procedures
Edwards, Paul. “Three Costly Assumptions.” DentalTown Dec. 2015: 48-56. Print.
Business owners succeed because after developing strong policies and procedures, they are disciplined enough to stick with them regardless of the situation. Following your own policies and procedures keeps everybody on the same page and all employees know what is expected of them and how you will treat them in all different kinds of situations. Sticking with the rules you create will dramatically reduce potential legal issues and you will notice that it also encourages more harmony in the workplace.
For example, sexual harassment and employment discrimination — and the attendant risks of disruption, conflict, and litigation — never need to occur in your workplace. If you have set up the right policies and procedures and have made an effort to follow them, these problems can be avoided most of the time. Dana Ball offers in-house training and help with developing policies, writing employee handbooks, and creating accountability systems to prevent violations from happening.
