Policy and Procedure Management Software Scholarship Essay Description:
No matter where you begin your career, your new employer will have written policies and procedures you will be expected to follow. Whether it’s the company dress code policy or a procedure for requesting time off, all of these documents need to be distributed and signed by every employee. Historically, most businesses printed out and hand-delivered policy and procedure manuals or electronic files were emailed or shared from a server.
Recently companies have started to move toward policy and procedure management software to automate the process of writing, approving and distributing policies. There are several significant benefits to having policy management software, however most businesses haven’t made it a priority to implement a system.
In 500 words or less, write a hypothetical business case to share with your future employer outlining why you’d recommend purchasing policy management software.
