New Expert Resource: HR Policy Guidebook Template

15 Sep 2020

The IGDA has just published a new resource for our members, the HR Policy Guidebook Template. This template is a 14 page document that can used to create a human resources policy guidebook for your studio and to review your current policy coverage to ensure you are addressing all important topics regarding the health, effectiveness, and well-being of your employees and studio.

This template has been reviewed by human resource, business management, and other leadership professionals within the game industry. It is the first in a series of resources that will dive more deeply into how to create positive, safe, and healthy studio culture. The creation of such resources is just one step we are taking to help improve the sustainability, diversity, and accessibility of the game industry.

As an expert resource, access to this document is limited active IGDA members. If you do not currently have an IGDA membership, please join or renew today to access this resource in addition to dozens of other benefits from discounts to access to programs such as our Global Mentorship Program. Your membership supports the creation of resources like this and the maintenance of programs and initiatives to support and advocate for developers across the globe.

We hope that these guidelines help you craft your own HR policies that support a healthy culture and positive workplace environment that is supportive of all game developers.
