How to Create a Great Employee Handbook: Expert Advice on Key Legal and Talent Management Trends

View this free webinar, which covers the basics that you need to know about creating or revising an employee handbook. An employee handbook is considered a staple in any business, regardless of size, based on these two important functions:

  1. Employee handbooks set forth expectations for employees: a top issue facing business and HR leaders is "employee engagement", and an employee handbook is one of the first and foremost introductions that new employees receive. Is your employee handbook conveying your business in the light that you want it to?
  2. Employee handbooks protect employers: clear policies can prevent liability. A well-written and clear handbook can protect an employer by establishing a structure so when issues arise, neither the employee nor the employer will be surprised by the outcome.

This free webinar, co-presented by Leanne Carlson, MBA, SPHR from LivingHR, Inc. and Cherie Silberman, JD from Constangy, Brooks and Smith, presents key trends and best practices in employee handbooks from both the legal perspective and the talent management perspective.

This free webinar will benefit all HR professionals who work with HR policies.
