Employment Handbooks are an excellent way to communicate key corporate information to your employees. Documenting your workplace policies and procedures in an easy-to-understand handbook ensures that every one of your employees receives exactly the same information about your workplace when they join your business. For your existing employees, the handbook ensures everyone understands your company's expectations. It will also assist in ensuring policies and procedures are applied consistently across your business. Policies documented in your handbook will usually include sexual harassment, anti-discrimination and bullying, social media and the use of email and the Internet at work. You may also wish to set out your induction process, hours of work and attendance expectations, benefits, wages and salaries and employee health and safety policies. You may even like to include a welcome message from a senior manager and provide a brief history of your business!
