Developing a Comprehensive Employee Handbook - 34th Run
SDF Funding Available
Skills Future Approved
Trainer: Arnold Chan

Crafting a comprehensive employee handbook should be a top priority for your organisation. An employee handbook is the foundation upon which the employer builds its workplace culture, as well as its legal requirements.

Employees cannot claim ignorance for inappropriate conduct harmful to your company.  Supervisors also become more effective because disciplinary decisions can be made based on the handbook policies, leaving all employees with a feeling of fairness and consistency. 

If you already have one, you should ensure that it has been recently updated to comply with the constantly changing policies and practices. Along with saving you time, such manuals can improve employee morale, prevent disagreements and even keep the company out of legal suits. 

This full-day workshop will allow you to examine a range of practices and examples from both local and global organisations, experience the opportunity to draft various topics of an employee handbook and apply a ready-to-use template to develop and customise your company’s handbook.

To anchor the learning and its application, the workshop incorporates group discussions, matrices and models, simulations and hands-on drafting as well as best practice evaluations.

Workshop Outline:

  1. Begin with the end in mind on the purpose and scope.
  2. Corporate compliance, legal requirements and alignment.
  3. Categorisation and sequencing of the document.
  4. Best practices and pitfalls to avoid.
  5. Hands on using the “T.A.T.“ approach.
