Online HR Policy Templates
Australia and New Zealand


The Sentrient online human resource management policy templates support small and medium businesses and larger organisations in Australia and New Zeland with their workplace relations and safety program. The online workplace compliance policies include anti-bullying and harassment, cybersecurity, internet and social medial, equal employment opportunity, health and wellbeing, infection prevention and control, work health and safety, working from home and more. These online HR management policies and procedures can be adapted to meet the specific needs of your organisation.

They can also be compiled to form an HR policy and procedure manual and employment guidelines for your business. You can change as little or as much of the HR policy templates as you like. Some sections of the content may be governed by state and federal legislation. It is important that you seek your own human resources and legal advice and that you maintain these HR policies as legislation changes and to meet the human resource management requirements of your organisation.

The Importance of HR Management Policies
and Procedures

Regardless of the size of your business or industry sector that you are in, HR management policies and procedures are an essential part of your workplace relations and safety program. Policies are important because they address key areas of HR and workplace governance, risk and compliance. Organisational policies and procedures help you to set and maintain standards, drive accountability, ensure consistent decision making and to let people know where to go for help if they need it. Unfortunately, many businesses do not have a reliable HR manual in place to help guide the right workplace behaviours.

This reduces the likelihood of staff being able to identify, report and resolve breaches in safety, invasion of privacy, and workplace incidents such as bullying, harassment and discrimination. Furthermore, it is required by law to provide HR policies and procedures to your staff. You must be able to demonstrate that everyone has read and understood your workplace policies at induction and on a regular basis thereafter. Failure to do so can lead to significant claims for legal liability, lost time spent in investigations and legal proceedings, a slide in revenue and shareholder return, and irreparable reputational damage.

Human resource management policy templates

The human resource management policy templates can be used as standalone policies or combined to make an employee policy handbook.. Each workplace policy can be adapted to meet the specific needs of your organisation. You can change as little or as much of the human resources manual templates as you like. Some sections may be governed by state and federal legislation. It is important that you seek your own HR or legal advice and that you maintain your version of the policy templates as legislation changes and to ensure a consistent message from HR.
