Building an Employee Handbook, It's Not As Hard As You Think! - Part 2
If you believe there is no purpose for an employee handbook in your business, think again. Today more than ever before the Employee Handbook is an essential tool for small business owners and leaders to keep everyone informed, on track, and productive. Attempting to run a successful business on assumptions is short-sighted. The Employee Handbook is a documentation of your company’s vision and purpose, and it helps your employees throughout their tenure. Even if you have just one employee, or plan to hire your first employee in the near future, the smart move is to build your Employee Handbook now.
Session 1 - Develop a clear understanding of why the employee handbook is necessary, which policies and procedures are important to include and the legal rights and obligations of employees and owners. Attendees will learn all aspects of building an Employee Handbook that will be explained in plain language.
Session 2 - A hand’s-on walkthrough of the steps required to create an accessible guide to company practices that will provide an overview of expected employee conduct, obligations and company procedures used to address issues and grievances. Attendees will receive an explanatory guide through each section of the Employee Handbook, samples of the required content and a step-by-step guide showing exactly how to build it.
