Organizations rely on handbooks as an important communication tool. Managers use them to set clear and consistent expectations for everyone. Staff access them most often when they first join the team -- and when problems arise. Done right, employee handbooks provide basic information about what staff can expect from your nonprofit, while also laying out what you expect as the employer. Great, well-implemented employee handbooks reduce time spent answering the same basic questions repeatedly, ensure policies are fairly applied, and reduce legal risks.
But it is important to understand that employee handbooks are not a “once and done” task. They require customization to your unique needs, regular review, and carefully considered revisions as circumstances change and new local, state and federal laws are enacted. Failing to stay current puts your organization’s continued existence at risk from lawsuits, fines and penalties. You may also put your staff at risk if you fail to keep your safety protocols current.
In this important and timely webinar, leading nonprofit consultant Lynn Ivey will show you methods to assess your handbook and essential updates you cannot afford to miss this year. She will also provide a comprehensive checklist to assist you in covering all the necessary bases.
