Policy Templates Handbook


In an ever changing business environment, an organisation should ensure that its policy’s core principles and defined procedures remain effective and relevant - further, the policies should comply with statutory and best practices requirements.


CGF’s ‘Policy Templates Handbook’ assists organisations in fulfilling these requirements. Each policy template provides practical and to-the-point guidelines in terms of the policy structure and content, and serves as an ideal framework against which to benchmark existing policies.


The ‘Policy Templates Handbook’ has been partly developed from the extensive material contained in CGF’s Body of Knowledge, which content showcases the editorial contribution and peer reviews of institutions and academics widely recognised for their thought leadership in their area of expertise, as well as the endorsement of the Institute of Directors (IoD) in South Africa.

  • Affirmative Action (AA)
