HOW IT WORKS

How to create a handbook

01

Use the handbook builder

One generic handbook does not work for every business. By providing answers to company-specific questions, you ensure that your handbook is applicable to the work you're doing (and where your employees are located). You can always go back and edit your handbook later.

02

The Handbook is assembled

Your handbook is assembled when all of your company data has been gathered. It takes only a few minutes to create an updated handbook with clear expectations and guidelines for your team.

03

Download your document

Download your handbook as a Microsoft Word Document. You should review your handbook with your trusted advisiors and make any changes you deem necessary. If you need assistance, we're here to help!

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Everything you need to know about your new employee handbook.

Q: How is this process different from hiring an expert to write an employee handbook?

A: Although we recommend that you consult with your expert advisors, our hope is that generating your employee handbook is an easy and affordable process. We work hard to deliver thoroughly vetted, clear and concise documents. We believe that a great handbook is foundational for great companies.

Q: Why do I need an employee handbook?

A: There are plenty of reasons you should have a current, well-written employee handbook. Here are a few of our favorites, 1) Set the tone in your workplace 2) Communicate what is expected of employees 3) Ensure your policies are clearly clear and accessible for your team 4) Defend yourself against employee claims 5) Explain your company benefits and what sets you apart.

Q: What additional content is included in the Comprehensive handbook?

A: There are about 20 additional sections included: Welcome Statement, Introductory Period, Performance Reviews, Employment Records, Disciplinary Policy, Employee Conduct and Work Rules, Use of Communication and Computer Systems, Punctuality and Attendance, Confidential Company Information, Solicitation, Conflict of Interest and Business Ethics, Equipment and Property Including Intellectual Property, Health and Safety, Hiring Relatives, Expense Reimbursement, References, Employee Acknowledgements, and State + city-specific policies. All of these sections (and more) are included in the Comprehensive handbook.

Q: What is the difference between the Free Basic and the Comprehensive handbook?

A: The free handbook is a useful, high-quality handbook. The benefit of upgrading to the Comprehensive handbook (either through a one-time payment or subscription) is receiving expanded content and additional policy sections. You also get state and city-specific policies. If you have employees in multiple states and cities, this is an important benefit. Purchasing the subscription option gives you access to ongoing updates + the link-sharing feature. Link sharing allows you to create a company-specific URL to share with your employees. Any time you make an update to the handbook, your entire team will have the current version.

Q: How long does it take to generate an employee handbook?

A: The Handbook Builder process begins with a series of survey questions. Typically, these questions can be answered in less than 5 minutes. The employee handbook is generated immediately after completing the survey. Many of our users are able to complete the entire process in less than 10 minutes.

Q: Are state and city-specific policies included?

A: The Comprehensive handbook includes policies specific to where your employees are located. This is important because the number of state and city-specific policies has increased greatly over the last few years. As more and more companies have moved to remote work, it’s not uncommon to have teams spread out over wide geographies. State and city-specific policies are important to help keep employers compliant and aligned on rules and requirements for each locale. State and city policies vary greatly around paid sick time, family and medical leave, and reimbursement of unpaid sick time (as well as many other topics). These state and city-specific policies are included in the Comprehensive handbook.
