Workplace Systems


Businesses need operating systems – practices and procedures by which production or service is regulated, controlled and maximised. 


The same applies to employees – clear practices and processes create a system within which the business and its employees operate. 

It doesn’t need to be difficult but every business needs to cover particular aspects of employee performance and function to ensure smooth operating.

 Workplace systems can cover things such as: 

  • Recruitment processes.

  • Employee handbooks.

  • Policies (such as IT and social media).

  • Health & Safety.

  • Incentive schemes and share option schemes.

  • KiwiSaver and superannuation schemes.

  • Appraisals and performance reviews. 


Whether a business needs all of these or only some it needs to at least consider what is right for it and its employees.

Our employment team provides specialist employment law advice in relation to implementing the best possible system – a framework of policies and practices - for employees.


Our objective is to help you get it right at the outset by advising on and drafting the documents and agreeing the procedures which create this system so there is an appropriate set of boundaries and expectations for businesses and their employees to operate within.  Getting this right will increase productivity, motivate staff and protect businesses against claims.
