5 must-have workplace policies to make life easier


Who doesn't want to make their work easier? Employers and HR/benefits managers can prevent sleepless nights by addressing these common workplace issues in written policies and planning procedures.

“Pick your battles wisely and what policies you want to focus on, so that you follow best practices for that issue,” suggested Julia A. Nicholson, director of health and welfare services at Employers Benefit Plans of Northern California, LLC. At the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans conference, Nicholson said that periodic review and auditing of these five key policies and procedures will ease HR/benefits headaches over the long-term.
