Employee handbooks are not only necessary for any size business but one of the most important communication tools to your employees. Employee handbooks should be a staple to any business, large or small. An employee handbook acts as a valuable communication piece for both employers and employees. It relays important information such as the history of a company, the organization’s mission and vision, policies, procedures, and benefits. Employers clearly communicate to the employees regarding how they should behave and what is expected of them. Once the employees understand their responsibilities, they have a reference point for how to execute their job and maintain discipline. It also communicates important state and federal laws surrounding employment.
