When Was the Last Time Your Employee Handbook Was Updated?

Admit it.  Your employee handbook hasn’t been updated in years, has it?

There’s no need to feel embarrassed — many, many companies are in the same position.  But it’s a subject that does need to be discussed… and an issue that must be addressed… sooner rather than later.

Employee handbooks may not be Amazon bestsellers, but they do serve a purpose.  More than anything else, they give all your employees guides and rules to follow.  Thus, if an employee is not acting according to the corporate culture regs as determined in your employee handbook, his or her manager is apt to have a much better sense of how to rectify the situation.

Of course, writing an employee handbook is hardly the stuff of novelists.  It takes a keen eye and  sharp insights into the world of HR and the corporate world to construct employee handbooks that are worth their weight.  That’s why it’s best to work with a company like VerifyProtect to help you through the journey.

Even if you already have an in-house human resources department with personnel, it’s never a bad idea to get a “second opinion”.  The worst thing that can happen is that you end up with a terrific, air-tight product!
