Tools and Resources

We work closely with our advisers, their customers and other stakeholders to produce comment and analysis of organisational performance and working life issues. We use this information to improve our services and develop new ways to meet the changing requirements of UK workplaces.

In this section, you'll find resources aimed at HR and employment relations experts, such as policy, research and discussion papers, and case studies.

This section also contains a number of tools, templates and checklists covering a range of employment and workplace matters. Our familiarity with best workplace practice and legislation, and the areas in which people often ask for help, make these tools reliable, practical and easy to use.

Acas Model Workplace

Acas' free online tool - the Acas Model Workplace - is designed to help organisations check that they have the right people management policies in place.

Of those who have used the Acas online tool, more than a quarter (28%) said that it had made them aware of an area where their organisation was not complying with the law (through incorrect people policies and procedures).

A lot of employers don't realise that they are following out-of-date practices. Or that they need to introduce new policies to comply with employment legislation. Further findings from the survey of employers show that 55% actively changed practices based on what they found when using the Acas Model Workplace tool.

This tool is free to use. Why not take a few minutes to check your policies and procedures today.
