Tehabo – Create An Employee Handbook
What are the main reasons for having an employee handbook? a) Text is better than voice – The time it takes you to read through a handbook is a lot faster than if your manager comes in and talks for hours about what’s what and who’s who. With a written guide you can get acquainted with everything and anything in your own comfortable pace; b) You can respect other people’s time – and don’t have to rely on anyone – It’s easier to read about your company’s procedures and policies rather than to wait for someone to get out of a meeting, or worse – interrupt them while they’re in the middle of their focus time; c) You can attract top talent – Show people what it’s like to work with you. By being open and honest about your policies and procedures, interested candidates might decide that they’d rather pick you instead of another place to apply; d) There’s no I in teamwork – If you get to know how other parts of the company work and what the company’s goals and vision are, you are empowered to make better decisions and work with other teams for a holistic way to make products. A handbook can go a long way further than a company retreat every now and then; e) Onboarding new employees as as painless as possible – New employees can learn, check and find answers to frequently asked questions like holidays, absences, reviews, and anything else you might want to include. They can get up to speed with your company’s basics a lot faster – and integrate more comfortably when they always have the most important info right at their fingertips; and f) An open dialogue improves processes and cuts excess ones – When you let people talk about processes and protocols, it helps to know what the current ones definitely are and how they’re defined. That way employees can offer suggestions and tips on how to improve them and make them more efficient. A frictionless flow is the best way to boost morale, loyalty, and overall productivity.
