One of the common questions that we often get asked is do I need a contract, do I need policies and procedures in place.
Many business owners struggle to see the need for them as they have always got away without them previously. They will say “oh I don’t need HR, I just sort it out myself, if I’ve got a problem with an employee and I need to get rid of them, I’ll just take them aside and have a chat.
If you’re lucky, then you may get away with it and you may operate for years without a problem, but trust me, that really is more luck than judgement.
The answer to the question is absolutely yes! You do need a contract of employment and you do need policies and procedures in place.
So, yes you need contracts and policies and procedures! Do you need to spend months developing them, spending thousands of pounds? No, you need to ensure that they are relevant for your business and our advice is to keep them as simple as possible. Don’t have a policy for the sake of having a policy!
