Standards of behaviour at work policy

When to use it

Standards of behaviour means the minimum standards of conduct and performance that you should expect from your employees.

Whilst it is not possible to set out in detail the standards expected  in every respect, this document provides some clarity on important aspects.

Standards of behaviour at work


[Company] does not seek to inhibit individual choice in relation to your appearance. However, you are expected to dress appropriately at all times in relation to your role, and to ensure that your personal hygiene and grooming are properly attended to prior to presenting yourself at work.

If we have supplied you with a uniform of other apparel, then you must wear this at all times when required to do so; it is your responsibility to ensure that this is clean and presentable.

If you have any queries about what is appropriate, these should be directed to your line manager.

Access to Company Premises

You will be issued with an [identity badge / access code] allowing access to your workplace. This remains the property of [Company] loss of your [identity badge / access code] (or accidental disclosure to someone) must be reported immediately to your line manager.

You must not bring any unauthorised person on to [Company] property without prior agreement from your line manager, unless you are authorised to do so as part of your job. In these circumstances you are responsible for ensuring that your visitors are appropriately monitored during their stay, and that they do not access areas or company property inappropriately.

You must not remove [Company] property from the organisation's premises unless prior authority from your line manager has been given.
