Policy. The one word guaranteed to bring glazed eyes and stifled yawns to any conversation. Surely there are better things to talk about. For example, yesterday’s baseball scores or the latest crazy cat video. Plenty of organizations, be them small, medium, large, non-profit, partnerships and yes, even multi-national enterprises, exist without them, so WHY do you need them? AND, for that matter, what is a policy anyways? We will attempt to break all of this down and help you get started in the wild world of corporate policy.
What is one thing every organization has in common regardless of size? The one-person shops to the small non-profits. The mid-market company fighting tooth and nail to make it in a competitive arena, and further on up to the company of ten-thousand spanning thirty states across the country. Even those multi national mega-corporations have this in common. What could an international corporation of 500,000 have in common with a local family owned diner of three? Customer information, of course.
