2016 New Year’s Resolution: Review that Old Employee Handbook

Now is a good time to commit to a page-by-page review of the Employee Handbook. It is often the primary source of work rules, employee culture and legal compliance. What may have been good practice just a few years back, may now be a “red flag” in the event of audit or employee complaint.

I recommend reviewing the Employee Handbook every 12 to 18 months to ensure this important Company document provides proper guidance and updates on key workplace issues.

Like an oil change for your car, a regular review of the Employee Handbook is simply good maintenance practice to keep the Company headed in the right direction.
