Updating Your Employee Handbook: Addendum or Overhaul?

Watch this 1-minute video

Updating your employee handbook can seem daunting, especially when new policies need to be integrated. Our webinar, 'How to Build the Best Employee Handbook for Your Business,' offers practical advice for HR professionals and business owners on the best approaches to update their handbooks efficiently.

Strategies for Updating Your Handbook

Adding New Policies

In this webinar snippet, Jack Wang questions the necessity of crafting a new handbook for a few policy updates. Tabitha Aliano suggests that for one or two new policies, creating an addendum is a feasible solution. This addendum should be acknowledged by all employees and stored appropriately, ensuring easy access and compliance.

Comprehensive Handbook Revisions

For significant updates or if your handbook hasn't been revised in over a year, a full handbook revision is recommended. This ensures that your handbook reflects current laws and integrates all new policies effectively. It's crucial to have employees sign off on the revised handbook to confirm their understanding and agreement.

Ensuring Compliance and Engagement

Updating your handbook is not just about compliance; it's also an opportunity to re-engage your team with your company's policies, values, and expectations. A well-maintained handbook serves as a clear guide for both new and existing employees, fostering a positive and informed workplace culture.
