Employee handbook

An employee handbook outlines a company’s mission, vision, values, policies, procedures and benefits in a written format. This document helps companies to ensure a positive, inclusive and loyal corporate culture is continuously built and maintained. All new hires should receive an employee handbook on their first day of work.  Existing employees should also receive a copy whenever the document is updated. Legally, companies are not obliged to have an employee handbook, yet it outlines important company policies and protects the roles and responsibilities of the employer and employee.  

While some companies opt to use online services like the company intranet to store and deliver this information, the traditional document-formatted employee handbook still has its role as a concise source of information all employees can rely on.

HR aims to create an uncomplicated, captivating and easy-to-understand employee handbook, but it might not be as simple as it seems.
