HR: Creating an Employee Handbook Certification

Developing a comprehensive and robust employee handbook is crucial if you want to see your organisation thrive. Handbooks tell employees exactly what is expected of them, helping them feel more confident in their positions. These documents also help deliver valuable information about company policies and procedures, so there is never any guesswork involved. This helps to keep you, your staff members and your entire company safe, even in an emergency situation. Additionally, handbooks can protect you from liability, since you can easily prove that all staff members are well-informed of the rules.

We begin by telling you exactly how to start brainstorming ideas, while also letting you know what sections are crucial for you to include regardless of your industry or the type of workplace you are running.
