Hi all,
I am looking for contents of an Employee hand book.Secondly how do you cope up with changes that happen in the organization? How do you constantly update the employee hand book?
Every time you print - will incur huge expenses!!!What do you guyz do? Have any ideas please share them?
Thanks in advance

Request you to consider the links to Employee Handbook in this page.
With regards to change in the organization , its a must process. You plan for that and accept it when it comes.
Employee Handbook needs to be maintained a softcopy in the Intranet , with a lock on downloads. Once an employee joins your organization , you need to handhold the employee through it as a part of your induction presentation . Please do make it available to the employees with online acess to read , as a refference.

Thanks ....but what happens when you give a physical copy to the older employees and the change happens you might have to incur a cost even to replace isn't it.yes i like the idea of intranet...but that would help the new employees
If you have your Employee Handbook on the intranet, there's no need for any hard copies to be given out. Changes, as and when they happen can easily be incorporated in the soft copy by those authorisd to do so.

An Employee Handbook is usually formatted with an Index and various sections.
This simplifies the changes and updates, as you would need to revise a particular section and issue a new sheet with a revision date and a fresh index sheet.
The index sheet would reflect the relevant topics with revision number and issue date. This makes it effective to tally and keep the manual up to date.
This avoids having to reprint the entire handbook.

Hi Venkat,
Most of the organisations have employee handbook on policies and process on Intranet. This way you can reduce the useage of paper as well and also the cost to the company. All you need to do is send out a mail to everyone informing about the changes in the policy or process. For the new joinees you can take them through the policies briefly during the Induction day and given them access to the intranet ASAP.

Hi all,
I am working in software company. In this company when a new joinee has joined we have given a Employee handbook but it is simply a printout. So, if i make a book (Color printouts) for the same is looking good or printout is ok? coz the changes is happen sometimes not every time.

Hi Venkat:

The suggestion about Intranet is indeed good... Many companies nowadays follow it.

And if you want to issue handbook to employees, you can do so - with a brief about employee policies, no need to print the entire handbook; also if you wish to get rid of these - just add a clause in policy (on Intranet) mentioning

Confidentiality-: This is XYZ(Co.Name) document and is not meant to be
shared externally. The information contained herein is the property of XYZ(Co.Name). Any duplication and reissue of this document would be understood as an infringement on XYZ (Co.Name)

The Policy Manual is available with HR Department having the entire policies and their brief, if anytime you ought to see the entire policies you can contact HR.

Also add this note at the end of Policy: XYZ(Co.Name) has a practice of continuously reviewing the Company Policy to maintain a position as an enlightened employer. Employees will be subject to any changes or amendments to the current policy, implemented in future.
(If needed add) If any changes in the policies, it would be intimated to all.

Hope this helps.
