The new year is the perfect time for putting an action plan around the annual HR initiatives you want to accomplish—updating your employee handbook for 2018 to name one in particular. When it comes to updating your handbook, it's critical for employers to be vigilant and to run frequent compliance checks to ensure it is up to date with the latest laws and trends.
Whether you are a large or small employer, it is essential to have an employee handbook to provide guidance with respect to issues such as employee benefits, leave and paid time off and discrimination and harassment policies. A good handbook not only educates employees, but may be a good tool for managers to use in understanding HR and personnel issues as they are often the frontline of inquiries.
