@TQCSI has launched the TQCSI Human Resources Compliance Code, believed to be the first of its type in the world. Published in August 2019, the HR Compliance Code was developed following consultation with ‘people and culture’ professionals, including international experts.
The HR Compliance Code is intended to be used as a guide for organisations who wish to implement a management system ensuring they respect legislation, agreements and conventions people work under.
The HR Compliance Code has been specifically prepared in response to a demand from governments and major customers for organisations to manage people, legislative compliance, ethical operations, cultural integrity and contractor control.
Organisations who are certified against the HR Compliance Code can demonstrate they:
• are aware of and abide by legislation, agreements, norms and conventions they work under
• act on those requirements to support their responsibility to their people
• operate workplaces that have transparent and compliant performance management systems, dispute resolution and grievance systems, and codes of behaviour
• provide an inclusive environment where people work without fear or intimidation.
Importantly, they also demonstrate the ability to reliably work with larger organisations who have achieved certification against the relevant international standards. Appropriately certified organisations may exhibit the TQCSI HR Compliance Code certification mark.
The HR Compliance Code is structured similarly to the high-level structure of all ISO management system standards facilitating integration with other management systems. The Code is designed to sharpen the scope of present systems by extending the existing inventory from aspirational guidelines to concrete compliance to contemporary ‘Human Resources’ requirements.
