With the high turnover many retailers experience, integrating new team members can become a real headache and a drain on your time. This document is an excellent starting point for creating a manual tailored to the needs of your store.
An employee handbook is useful for all staff, old or new. It can:
- provide an introduction to your company and its structure;
- give employees a better understanding of what their supervisors expect of them. That includes policies on attendance, performance and scheduling; and
- ensure that operating rules, procedures and working conditions are enforced fairly and rigorously.
Need to make sure your handbook is in line with all the rules and regulations? Want a second set of eyes to make sure you’ve adapted it to your store? CFIB members can call our business counsellors for help using our templates!
