The Handbook is really about ‘the way we do things around here’.
It sets the boundaries for day to day working. It sets out what an employee can expect. It sets out what the business/company/organisation offers. It sets out the boundaries in the working relationship.
We worked with the director of a high end audio and visual installation service who wanted to share his expectations with his employees. We discussed an employee handbook so that both he and his employees would be ‘singing from the same hymn sheet’.
The handbook was presented in electronic format which makes it simple to keep up to date and easy to communicate to employees. It’s there, everyone knows where to find it, and it is a living document which changes as the business changes.
The handbook has also been a learning and development exercise for the director who has learnt some of the legal aspects to employing people.
