If you have employees, they should have a copy of your employee handbook. This is a powerful tool that allows you to share your workplace policies and benefits and it’s a great thing for your employees to know what is expected of them.
No matter the size of your business, if you have full- or part-time employees, you should have a handbook.
Your handbook should be an easy-to-understand outline for employees to understand what is and what is not acceptable behavior in your workplace. It can define expectations so an employee at any level has a back-up when questions arise with vendors, coworkers, direct reports, guests or clients. This is a great place for workplace policies such as disaster response, discrimination, and drug testing.
Do your employees fully understand the dress code? This is your opportunity to put in writing what is, and what is not acceptable attire.
What is the sick time or vacation policy? Do you offer professional development reimbursement?
Ripley PR has professional content writers who can write a handbook for you. Our team will guide you through the whole process, from establishing employee relations goals to examining any legal restraints HR should be concerned with to implementing an appealing format with all the digital extras you’d like.
We can even put a process in place to update the handbook as needed, so you’re not caught out when laws or workplace standards change and your employees need to stay in the loop.
For a fresh new handbook your employees will actually read and refer to, or an update on that old handbook you may be using as a doorstop for the conference room, contact our internal communications support team today.
