Case Study #5 “HR practices that protect”
Linking HR to organizational vision
Situation: An employer with over 400 employees had started the revision of the Employee Handbook a number of times, but it was never finished. Hence, the current handbook was a sloppy combination of photocopies, handwritten notes, e-mails and memos.
Action: In under a month, the handbook was updated to reflect both the new policies and the latest court decision standards in employment liability, all in one readable format.
Result: The employer now has an Employee Handbook that now provides:
- Professional presentation of the organization
- Accurate recording and communication of current actual practices
- Improved consistency in treatment of all employees
- Latest court decisions on employee communication and protection of management rights
