Let Marzano Human Resources Consulting create for your business an employee handbook that will increase employee engagement and mitigate risk to your company.
If you have an employee handbook but are not sure if it’s comprehensive enough or have one which has not been reviewed in over a year, we would be happy to take a look at it and make any necessary revisions.
Five reasons why your company should consider an employee handbook:
1. Introduces employees to your culture, mission and values
This helps to foster a sense of pride and belonging, which studies show will help employees become more productive in a shorter period of time.
2. Helps ensure key company policies are clearly and consistently communicated
A handbook will accurately communicate your organization’s policies regarding employment, conduct and behavior, compensation, and other policies and procedures you follow.
3. Ensures compliance with federal, state and local employment laws
A handbook communicates to employees the various federal, state and local employment laws. For example, if your employee is called into active-duty military service, you will want to be sure they understand their rights and obligations when communicating their reason for taking leave.
4. Helps defend against employee claims
When facing a lawsuit from a current or former employee, one of the most useful documents you can provide your attorney or third-party investigator will be a copy of your handbook.
5. Explains where employees can turn for help
Employees should feel comfortable turning to a member of management for help when reporting workplace violations or when needing assistance. The alternative is for them to complain to the EEOC or their state department of labor, triggering a costly and time-consuming investigation.
