This is a great program for building an employee handbook that is compliant, while also reflecting and reinforcing your company culture. Whether you are starting from scratch or updating an existing handbook.

In this fast-moving training, attorney, author and speaker, Don Phin, will take us through the basics of handbook compliance. Don will remind us about the importance of staying compliant with a wide range of laws, including those promulgated by Federal, State and Municipal governing bodies, along with the myriad of regulations and case laws surrounding the interpretation of those laws.

Then Don will focus on the opportunities available in creating great employee handbooks. He will discuss how you can focus your handbook on defining and reinforcing your company culture, vision, mission, values, goals, and more.

Finally, he'll talk about bringing your employee handbook to life and the opportunities that have been created by graphics, media, and the online storage and dissemination of handbooks.

Why should you attend?

Too many employee handbooks are out of date, focus only on legalities or administrative policies, and are boring at best.

The #metoo movement has made it very clear that your handbook needs to show employees how to behave and what procedures to follow when they don't. 

Yes, your handbooks must be compliant, but they must also play a role in establishing company culture. 

Do your employees WANT to read your handbook? Is it interesting? Attractive? Positive? 

How can you take advantage of graphics, media, and online storage in creating your handbook?
