What is a Staff Handbook?
The staff handbook which may also be known as the employee handbook is an extremely important internal communication tool as brings together, in one place, the organisation’s workplace policies, processes and procedures.
These policies, processes and procedures can be key to ensuring the smooth running of a business as they provide guidance to employees and managers alike on how to manage and respond to issues and situations that arise in the day-to-day running of a business.
It is not uncommon for a situation that should have been resolved quickly to run out of control in terms of time and money because there was no set procedure to deal with it. A badly managed situation can also damage team morale and increase the likelihood of a disgruntled employee bringing a claim against their employer in the Employment Tribunal.
