Open Door Policy for Business and Management

An open door policy guarantees that employees can go above their boss to seek assistance from the boss's supervisor. An open door policy provides employee access to any manager or supervisor including the CEO. I highly recommend that all organizations adopt and promote an open door policy that creates no repercussions for employees.
