Is it buried somewhere in the bottom of a file cabinet somewhere? Perhaps since implemented years ago and it’s forgotten. Or maybe it doesn’t exist.
The employee handbook is an essential tool and not just about setting policy and staying compliant with laws and regulations. The best employee handbooks can help bring everyone unto the same page. It provides a refresher on the company’s vision, mission and core values.
The employee handbook creates transparency and consistency. It serves as a reference for decision making when issues become gray. It also orients new employees as they become familiar with your organization and culture.
The key to having an effective employee handbook system is senior leaders are on the same page and support the policies within the handbook. Many employers are breathing life in their employee handbooks that include redesigning, renaming and reformatting to be exciting, bold and engaging.
Now it’s your turn. Pull out your handbook and reimagine how you may use it to engage your employees.
