An employee handbook is the most important communication tool between you and your employees. A well-written handbook sets forth your expectations for your employees, and describes what they can expect from your company. An employee handbook should describe your legal obligations as an employer, and you employee’s rights. Now you can put your company handbook online so that it is available to your employees 24/7. You can also insure that employees have read and understand the hand book by including assessments and interactions to the online version.

The digital version can be programmed so that the employee has to read and understand the entire contents and the CyberLearnPro Learning Management System will record employee participation and level of competency for as long as you need to keep a record.

You never know if somewhere down the road you may need to prove that employee X was issued a handbook containing your harrassment policy. Now you will be able to show within minutes that they were issued the handbook, when they completed reading it and to what level they understood it.

The following is information taken from www.business.gov. Included are suggestions of what to include in your handbook and a template for creating a handbook.
