An example of corporate double speak.

A "policy" in a corporation that purports to invite open communications with middle management by stating their door is always open as a matter of policy. However, it's just human resources bullshit, as such feedback is almost universally NOT desired by the managers, 90% of whom will see such interruptions as wasting time.

Because it is not really a policy, it's a statement that is designed to lull employees into the womb of contentment while not actually accomplishing anything.

See also closed door policy.
"Man, our benefits package this year really blows! I wish I could tell management."
"Hey, doesn't your department have an Open Door Policy?"
"Are you kidding? They just say that because it sounds friendly. If I bitched to my manager about this, I'd be shown the door."

1. Dude 1: I just got cock blocked from my freaking mother!
Dude 2: Really? That sucks!
Dude 1: Yeah, she really shafts me with that open door policy.

2. Dude 1: Ugch! I was up all night!
Dude 2: I can tell, you look like a zombie!
Dude 1: Yeah, my parents were going at it last night and tried to trick us with the Open Door Policy. They failed miserably and my mother's moans could be heard across the universe.

a policy that requires all doors to remain open at all times, generally due to an ex-convict's aversion to doors being closed because they make him feel like he's back in the joint
House guest: Man, what the hell you opening the bathroom door for when I'm in there takin' a shit?!
Home owner (ex-con): If you're gonna stay here you're gonna have to abide by the Open Door Policy.

House guest: What the hell you talkin' about?!
Home owner (ex-con): Ever since I did that 6 months in Statesville, I can't have any doors closed in my house. I get to feeling like I'm locked in and I bug the fuck out, Dogg. The Open Door Policy is as much for your safety as for mine.
House guest: That seems fair, homie.
