Employee Handbook Examples We Love

Some of the best handbook examples we’ve seen come from companies that try to overlay their culture alongside their policies. Maybe you’ll see something that inspires you.

1. The Motley Fool's employee handbook

This handbook does a great job of laying out company benefits and policy, in a way that, well, to quote the Fool, “doesn’t make your eyes glaze over.” This company effectively summarized employee benefits and policies while keeping the handbook welcoming and light-hearted.

2. Chick-Fil-A’s employee handbook

This handbook is all that and a side of Polynesian sauce. It even dabbles on phrases such as “my pleasure,” which is a company-mandated reply any time a customer says “Thank you.” Although sometimes polarizing in the news, Chick-Fil-A remains commercially successful and does a nice job laying out its policies and procedures in the employee handbook. Chick-Fil-A’s employee handbook heavily encapsulates the company’s many rules of service and expectations.

3. Wegmans' employee handbook

Wegmans offers a thorough overview and espouses both company culture and policy.

4. Netflix's employee handbook

Netflix focuses on 10 core values that are laid out in easy-to-digest bullet points on its publically available culture page (full transparency.) It’s a little thin on some details but is an example of an out-of-the-box handbook that’s worth checking out.

5. Entrata's employee handbook

This handbook is a decent mix of culture and heavy on policy. It’s clear that the leadership team maintains that 80s Bill & Ted vibe and Rule #1: Be Excellent to Each Other.
