Writing an Employee Handbook

Do you own a small or medium-sized company (or are its representative) and your success brings with it a lot of challenges, especially with regards to managing your workforce?
Has the number of your employees increased dramatically and you realize that you can
no longer manage in the same way?

Developing a policy and procedures manual will allow you to implement a systematic approach to the day-to-day administration of your operations, to facilitate your managers' communications with your employees on recurring topics.

The development of this manual will also establish the responsibilities of both employees and the employer. Finally, the development of the manual will illustrate your desire
to be more coherent and equitable in the management of your business.

This workshop in our HRM program will help you understand the extent and scope
of a policy and procedures manual while providing you with a practical methodology
for its development.
