Protect what you have worked so hard to build
You’re not a cookie-cutter business; you have your own culture and your own strengths, and we recognize that. Actually, we love and encourage that! As a company that takes a modern approach to HR, we believe in making customized, modern Employee Handbooks for your company. That means every policy is written to fit your specific needs, and we keep your values front-and-center.
A modern Employee Handbook is a formalized document that is given to every employee prior to their first day of employment. While customization is encouraged, it’s important to note that your modern Employee Handbook must include:
Your modern Employee Handbook must include:
Legal policies, best practices, or other information that is essential; every employee must sign off on this! Some of this information may be company-specific, for example, if you have a company vehicle policy, include it here.
Information about your company expectations. This can include day-to-day tasks such as timekeeping expectations or other details specific to your company. You can also define and discuss your company culture.
Your company story, mission statement, and values…let them know a bit about you, your management team, and what it means to work for your company.
A modern Employee Handbook should go far beyond the old school, black-and-white approach to handbooks that we once knew! Colorful images, bold fonts, easy-to-digest paragraphs, and a bit of personality will help the information in your handbook resonate with every employee. You’re crafting a document for today’s modern workforce, and for your ideal team.
Concise communication is key in fostering an understanding of company procedures, expectations, culture, and protocol; that is why it is important to curate a modern Employee Handbook that is unique to your business and incorporates all of this vital information in one book.
Having all of this information in one place means that you, as a business owner, will stay organized. It also means that all of your employees–new hires, or long-time employees alike– will be able to reference policies, practices, and other information that is relevant any time they need to. This can help avoid misunderstandings early on, as employees will be clearly told what to expect, and what is expected of them.
