Many business owners become bogged down by paperwork and put off implementing (or even having) an employee handbook. However, an employee handbook is a vital tool in the smooth day-to-day operation of a business. The following list illustrates the importance of an employee handbook and gives business owners a reason to move employee handbooks to the top of their priority list. An employee handbook will:
1. Ensure clear and consistent communication with all employees
2. Define the culture of the business
3. Outline expectations for employees
4. Describe employee benefits
5. Communicate important policies and procedures
6. Help protect valuable business information
7. Keep your workplace safe
8. Comply with federal and state legal requirements
9. Potentially, protect your business from direct competition by a former employee
