Done correctly, the employee handbook is a foundational component of your business – providing significant value to both the employer and employee, including:
  • An introduction for new employees to the policies, procedures and culture of your company
  • A helpful tool for employees and supervisors to understand and consistently adhere to organizational practices.
  • A reliable basis for employee performance management and disciplinary actions.
  • Legal evidence that your company’s policies are consistent with and encourage adherence to employment laws.
