Disseminating policies

What is the best method to disseminate policies?

Electronically with search capability. Having a policy on the Web or on an electronic database (such as on Lotus Notes or in an 4th GL database) is quite advantageous. I recommend putting policies in ONE PLACE for consistency (so workers know where to look for them) and on an electronic system so they are accessible to all workers. The other advantage is you only have to make the change in one place, reducing the likelihood that someone will obtain an overlooked copy of the policy. Don't forget to DATE each policy and note when something is new. I also recommend sending e-mail announcements when policies are modified or new policies are added.
