Businesses and charities are increasingly under regulator and public scrutiny. By having effective policies that are in line with others across your sector, you can demonstrate the required governance and control. An effective and transparent policy environment can protect you and you save money by establishing cost effective standards across your organisation. 

Three main problems with policy management

Rules

Not all organisations have documented rules and standardised policies. Without these it is hard to maintain a consistent approach to buying products and services and can introduce supply chain risk

Standards

Having polices that do not meet the required levels or which conflict with an organisation's core purpose can be damaging and impact on both the culture and brand of an organisation

Compliance

Organisations often develop their own suite of policies.  However these can take up valuable resource and need to be regularly assessed. They also then need to be communicated into an organisation for ongoing compliance

Our Solution = SMARTpolicies

Very rapidly, your organisation will have a clear set of policies that meet international standards. These policies have been tested for simplicity and clarity of message and for effective implementation.

Each policy is customised to your organisation, adjusted to cover any brand-critical considerations and comes with a communication and PDF poster pack for you to distribute.
