HR Policies and Procedures for a start-up SME

I work for a small start-up business. We have just hired our first employees and need to put in place some basic HR policies as a starting point. Specifically I need policies for the following:

Recruitment and Selection

Discipline and Grievance



Social Media Usage

Equal Opportunities

Rather than write these all from scratch I would like to adapt ones already written. if you have anything that you are willing to share I would be very grateful. I will of course observe confidentiality.

Many thanks

  • Hello Andrea,

    Hope you are well.

    You might also find the ACAS website helpful as they have lots of booklets and documents which have sample policies in them which you can then adapt and amend for your business.

    I have attached the link below for you


    Hope this all helps for now and good luck with your task!

    Kind regards
