Policy development

Documenting and implementing internal policies and processes is a crucial aspect of a successful corporate governance. These policies should reflect the culture of the organisation, be in line with legislation/regulations and help achieve its desired goals. The availability of policies can also aid in streamlining decision-making as well as the risk appetite of the business.
