What's the purpose of an employee handbook?

Employee handbooks are critical for service-based businesses such as agencys. Handbooks speed up the process of getting employees performing at their best, and the result is better employees and happier customers.

Enhance professionalism

Show your staff that you are serious about your agency, and more importantly, their performance. A professional looking handbook makes it clear to staff that it's important to read and adhere to.

Address Questions

Good employees want to know what they need to do and how to do it. Your agency’s handbook will cover this in a uniform way. We've included all the frequently asked questions we've heard over the years and answered each one clearly. By answering these questions upfront, you save a lot of headaches down the road.

Improve Employee Confidence

Agency employees do better work when they are confident of their job requirements and the specific procedures they are expected to perform. This translates to better customer service as well.

Improve Consistency

When you have the policies written out, you can consistently train every employee quickly. If you need to take disciplinary action with someone, the employee handbook gives you written documentation of procedures in case of any messy legal action.
