Executive Summary

An employee handbook can be an invaluable tool for an employer, serving to inform employees about company policies, procedures and practices and to communicate expected standards of performance and conduct. A well-designed handbook can positively influence employee morale and promote employee loyalty. It can introduce a new employee to the organization, helping the individual to fit in more easily. In addition, the handbook can create a sense of consistency of practice that will enhance the employee's feelings of being treated fairly - there are few factors more destructive to the employment relationship than an employee's belief that employment decisions are arbitrary. The handbook can also serve as a reference guide to help managers and supervisors take appropriate actions in a given situation.
