Reviewing Employee Handbooks As 2016 Ends

The New Year is fast approaching, and RSJ wants to help our colleagues start 2017 out right. All employers should conduct an annual review of their employee handbooks and update them as necessary. A few reasons to review and update employee handbooks include:

Effectively Communicate Work Expectations

o An employee handbook is an effective communication tool that should clearly outline expectations and the consequences for not meeting those expectations. In certain circumstances, such as performance reviews or investigations, a well drafted handbook can ensure that employees are consistently administering policies. This can help avoid many common misunderstandings and unreasonable employment expectations.

Protect the Business

o All businesses must comply with federal and state laws and regulations. Regularly reviewing and updating the employee handbook is a critical component of ensuring that the business complies with these legal requirements, and can help avoid potential litigation.

Engage and Motivate Your Team

o An employee handbook is a crucial point of engagement. When employees receive their handbook, they understand that they are joining a team. By including sections on the business's company's history, mission statement and goals, it can motivate its employees to continue contributing to its success.

RSJ can help your business review and update policies which will set the tone for your organization. If you don't have an employee handbook, now is a good time to look into creating one. We can create a custom employment handbook that will meet your company's needs. Our experienced staff offers honest and practical advice to help your business handle any immediate needs and strategic planning to avoid future legal issues.
