As a manager — no matter what your specific role within the organization or what size or type company you work for — you have three important responsibilities to your employees when it comes to policies and procedures: access, education and enforcement.
Because you play a key role in showing your employees how to access your organization’s policies, educating employees on policies and procedures, and enforcing policies, you’re also a policy manager of sorts, whether your main role is marketing, sales, accounting, HR or other departmental manager. After all, you most likely know your department’s specific policies better than anyone else.
So if you hesitated in answering any of the above questions, or if it’s sometimes difficult to access, learn or enforce your company’s policies and procedures, it’s time to reevaluate your policy management system.
What’s the most efficient way to access and enforce your policies, and educate employees on them? Consider automating all three processes with ConvergePoint’s Policy Management Software, and do away with policies updated via email chains, “organized” on Excel spreadsheets and stored in share drives. From creation through distribution and acknowledgement, ConvergePoint software manages the full policy lifecycle.
Built on Microsoft SharePoint, the software stores all policies in one central document repository, enabling employees to easily access and find policies with powerful search functionality. It also allows managers to create quizzes or require acknowledgements that policies have been read and understood, and sends automated email reminders when a policy is up for renewal or retirement.
Next step: After using Policy Management Software to streamline the access, education and enforcement of policies and procedures, learn how to hold your employees accountable to what they’ve read and acknowledged by reading our How-to Guide.
After investing time and resources creating these policies, make sure employees read, understand and apply them to their daily job responsibilities! How? Read the Guide on How to Ensure Employee Accountability & Compliance through Effective Policy Management.
