What all great companies have in common is a well-defined set of rules recorded in an easily accessible employee handbook. The Small-Business Guide to Creating Your Employee Handbook provides you with all the information you need to create an understandable set of rules and regulations for your employees to follow. New and current employees will appreciate the information you set out in your employee handbook. It not only provides your employees with company policies but also provides protection against unfair treatment, discrimination, and legal claims. Your handbook will be a valuable communication tool for both your business and your employees. This step-by-step guide will help you define professional conduct, establish health and safety requirements, describe group and other benefits, and construct social media policies. It also provides information on how to make a nondisclosure agreement so employees cannot give information about your company to your competitors, while they are employed by you or after they leave. The CD included with this book contains easy-to-use forms to help you as you prepare your small business’s very own employee handbook.

Kimberley King, BA, CHRP, began her more than decade-long career as a human resources generalist with an investment management company, before transitioning into human resources management with two of Canada’s major retailers. She has drafted and helped compile HR handbooks and one-off policies for each company she has worked for; being aware of how effective a well drafted and communicated handbook is for company productivity, she put together this HR handbook for small businesses that don’t have the time or know-how to draft one for themselves. King’s goal is to help small businesses with their HR needs, starting with this book.

Elise Riddall, BA, has spent more than 17 years as a human resources and leadership development professional in high growth, entrepreneurial environments. She is currently running a consultancy (KoreHR.ca) specializing in policy and procedure creation; talent management; organizational design and structure implementation; leadership development; executive coaching; and talent acquisition.
