Can you afford to risk your business with no Employee Handbook?
Employee Handbook Template
Asking your employees to work in your business and not providing any rules or guidelines is like asking a taxi driver to fly an aircraft with no training how to operate an aircraft.
An Employee Handbook is one of the most crucial top shelf documents of any business. Without it your business is in chaos.
Your team are likely to be doing whatever they want, however they want and whichever way suits them. An Employee Handbook is essential for the operation and handling of your team right across your business no matter what size it is.
Customers love consistency. Delivering consistently to customers ensures they return again and again to your business for more. Small and medium business survive on repeat work. Without repeat work, it becomes a struggle to survive.
Mistakes and not delivering each and every time to a set standard drives customers away. You must eliminate mistakes as much as you can. Mistakes cost your business money and before long you will be struggling to make a profit.
This is why an employee handbook is so important.
An Employee Handbook delivers Consistency
People need rules and guidelines to help them day by day to get their jobs completed accurately and to the same standard they last performed the same task.
If they don’t have this guidance, they will lack responsibility and process, and will be inefficient, inaccurate and drain your business.
No one is perfect. However, systems help to raise the ‘quality bar’ in your business. Your team need rules and guidelines to follow. Otherwise they will just make it up.
An employee handbook is full of rules, regulations, guidelines and procedures they need to do their jobs. It should be presented to every new employee from day one. You should also be using it to delegate tasks.
5 Common Mistakes that Businesses Make with No Employee Handbook
There are so many businesses around that do not have an Employee Handbook in place.
Here are 5 common mistakes that businesses without an Employee Handbook do every day.
1. Micro managing is rife
The business owner is involved in the ‘micro detail’ of every job. This is a ‘heart attack’ waiting to happen.
2. Quality control is inconsistent
The quality that goes out the door is inconsistent. Why would any customer come back if they never know what type of consistency they are going to get? They won’t risk their cash.
3. Can’t find anything
No one in the business can find anything because everyone has their own filing procedure. What happens when someone goes on leave?
4. Mistakes happen regularly
Mistakes happen on a weekly if not daily occurrence. Customers don’t like mistakes. They might forgive you once if you have a good relationship, but if you keep making mistakes, watch them run.
Can you afford to lose customers? I know I can’t.
5. Quality is average
Average or below average. There is no opportunity to charge higher rates and earn more profit.
Quality = Profit. Producing to a higher standard will allow you to lift your prices.

Team Roles – Position Descriptions
Next are Team Roles or commonly known as Position Descriptions. This is one on the most important things when it comes to getting a good performance from your team.
There are so many employees that have never been told what their role is. How can they perform in their role if they are not told what it is?
It is CRITICAL that your team know exactly what they need to do to perform their job. How can you blame them if they make honest mistakes when you haven’t even told them properly how to do their job?
Yes – it take significant effort to tell them what they need to do in detail, and every time a new team member starts, you have to tell them again.
The best thing to do is implement Position Descriptions. This identifies exactly what they are required to do in DETAIL and this is invaluable to you as a business owner.

Why we do what we do
“This is the best money our company has spent since its inception almost 3 years ago. This manual was worth it if for nothing else but the Automatic Table of Contents. That alone made it worth the money, but it was more than that.
The basics that were already there got me started and it was easy to edit and make custom to our company. We have already had to fire an employee and our attorney told us that having them fired over non-compliance with company policy (with their signature on the policies in file) would help us if we ever had to fight an unemployment claim.
It’s great to finally have all policies in one place.
Also, the procedures will free us up as owners to get more work done since we do not have to stop and explain the same procedures repeatedly. Now we just refer to the manual.
Your price was AMAZING! I shopped for other manuals at $250-$500 and they looked too complicated and unnecessary too. Sometimes too much is just too much.
I’ve worked in human resources for years prior to opening our own business and this manual is more than enough for covering our needs and looking like a professional HR department created it.
Thanks for everything and for making it at a price that made me willing to try it because if it didn’t work, what did I lose.
Well it did work! Thanks so much!!!”
I have already started to use the template and customize it to my specific needs. I have looked all over the internet and your template is by far the easiest to use and modify.
Anyone who is looking to get a quick start on a procedure manual that is easy to modify and continuously update, would be well served to purchase your template as it is a “Real Bargain” at the price.
