Do you have your most up-to-date policies and procedures written down? If not, you really need to. Your business’ policies and procedures need to be combined into a written guide so your team has a resource to turn to for all of their questions. Here are some things you should include in your written employee handbook:

All Business Requirements and Responsibilities

In this handbook, you should list out all of the requirements and responsibilities that your employees need to be aware of. Here are some of the things we recommend:

  • FMLA (Family and Medical Leave Act) information
  • Non-discrimination policies
  • Sexual harassment policies
  • Worker’s compensation policies

You might also want to add your internal policies like:

  • Paid-time off policy
  • Payment times and promotion/review policy
  • Employee behavior expectations
  • Employee dress code
  • Benefit structure
  • Remote work policy
  • Social media and employee device policy
  • We also recommend adding in some content that will set the tone of your organization, like adding in a mission statement and history.

Consider Your Layout

Your handbook needs to be optimally useful, so it should be organized in a way that makes it easy to read and understand. This means adding bookmarks so they can skip to other sections and a table of contents for readability.

Update It

Things change, and they do so pretty often. Make sure your employee handbook updates too. These changes are important to keep up with, so make sure your handbook is able to be changed with ease.
