Creation of Staff Handbook

A staff handbook is a go-to document that employees can refer to if they have questions regarding their duties and rights. It sets out policies and procedures such as dress code policy, anti-bullying policy, policies for sick leave etc. It is regarded as one of the key foundational documents that a business is built on together with an employment contract.
