Employee Handbooks

Description

A nationwide survey of employers revealed that while organizations use employee handbooks to address key business, legal, and talent management challenges, they limit the effectiveness of their handbook policies by the use of ineffective of the handbook practices. As the survey report noted, in many organizations there is a disconnect between the drafting of handbook policies and the implementation of those policies.

To increase the effectiveness of their employment policies, organizations will have to: 1) enhance their business, operational, and legal intelligence to ensure they have identified the changing external and internal factors that affect their policies; 2) increase internal stakeholder participation in the handbook development process to obtain greater employee commitment and operational alignment; 3) establish new metrics to assess handbook policy and practices performance and measure the achievement of organization goals;  and 4) implement internal controls that identify and alert management when employee handbook process failures occur.

This webinar discusses how organizations can reduce the gap between policy issuance and effective implementation.
