Workplace Policy Builder: new online tool for health and wellbeing policy
A new online resource - Workplace Policy Builder - will enable small businesses to create health and wellbeing policies quickly and easily, through the www.business.govt.nz website. It is part of a suite of free online tools from business.govt.nz that help making running a small business easier for business owners and managers.
“Small businesses who lack in-house expertise can avoid the hassle of drawing up a policy from scratch by using this new online tool. It offers them the assurance that their policies will comply with current law. The online Workplace Policy Builder makes it easy for small businesses to tailor policies to the individual circumstances of their workplaces," noted Small Business Minister Stuart Nash.
The new policy was developed in association with the Health Promotion Agency, and adds to the existing policies in the Workplace Policy Builder. These include policies for flexible work practices, IT and social media, annual leave and holidays. More policies are in development.
Other tools include the recently launched Choose Business Structure tool and Employment Agreement Builder. An estimated half a million employment agreements have been created based on the Employment Agreement Builder since it launched in April 2016.
