Effective employee communications are essential to ensuring smooth operations for any business. A key element of your employee communications package should be your employee handbook.
An employee handbook sets out a company’s policies and procedures. It establishes standards for all facets of on-the-job conduct and can prevent misunderstandings on the part of employees as to what is expected of them. Employers generally give an employee handbook to new workers upon hire, and to all employees whenever the handbook undergoes revision.
