Policy & Employee Handbook Development
Do your employees know what is expected of them in terms of conduct? Do they know the ‘dos and don’ts’ of using company computers? Do they know what to do if they need to take time off? What may seem like common sense to you isn’t always so clear to others. And in this day and age, it’s always better to err on the side of caution and be explicit in your expectations for your employees.
That’s where company policies come in to play. Company policies enable you to set forth expectations for your workers in a wide variety of areas. And policies can provide you, and employees alike, peace of mind.
But what’s more, the Department of Labor and other state labor agencies require businesses to have certain workplace policies in place. In these cases, having established policies isn’t much of a choice, but rather a necessity (or you could face hefty penalties).
Rea’s HR Consulting Services team is equipped to work with all types and sizes of businesses on creating individual policies, all the way up to entire employee handbook, and anything in between.
If you have policies or an employee handbook already established, but it’s been a while since it’s been updated, we’re also happy to help dust off the cobwebs. Our team can take a fresh look at it and provide recommendations on what updates may be needed.
Policies and handbooks don’t have to be a million pages long. But having sound, well-thought-out – and compliant – documentation of your expectations will create consistency among your staff and will also prevent you from having to shell out your hard-earned money for potential penalties.
