A well-written staff handbook brings together employment and job information giving your employees practical information and clear understanding of the working relationship.
A staff or employee handbook is important for all businesses, regardless of whether they are a startup, an established SME or a large company. There are numerous benefits of having a staff handbook in place for both the business and its employees.
It states how a company complies with employment legislation and because it is non-contractual you can make amendments to it without consulting your staff. The handbook informs employees of the company’s mission, culture and values whilst also explaining what is expected from them.
A staff handbook should explain how complaints from employees are handled and can defend a business from claims by workers. A handbook can highlight the benefits available for staff and provide guidance for managers. Company policies are also clearly communicated within a staff handbook.
Startups and SMEs probably don’t have the resources to dedicate the time to compile a staff handbook and it makes sense to outsource the work to an experienced HR professional.
