Bespoke Employee Handbook

A Bespoke Employee Handbook For Your Business

Your Bespoke Employee Handbook will:
  • Protect Your Business
  • Improve Consistency
  • Be Written in Plain English
  • Remain Up To Date

The Employee Handbook writing service is ideal if you are looking to implement a professional and comprehensive employee handbook that is tailored to the needs of your business.

You will also find the Employee Handbook writing service suitable if your existing employee handbook is out of date and ready for a re-write. As your business grows there will be sections of your Employee Handbook that are no longer fit for purpose for instance the simple absence policy you implemented when you had 5 employees may no longer be suitable now you employ 25 employees. Also as your business grows you may have a need to introduce new policies such as energy conservation, use of social media or driving whilst on company business.

Outsourcing the writing of your employee handbook to me allows you to focus on what you know best

What You Can Expect From The Kea Bespoke Employee Handbook Service

  • Content
    The content of your Employee Handbook will be tailored to reflect your existing working practices whilst taking into account your specific business needs and future goals. Your handbook will:

    • Summarise the benefits you offer your employees such as holiday entitlement, bonuses, company cars and company sick pay
    • Describe the employment policies you will follow when dealing with common HR issues such as disciplinary matters and unsatisfactory levels of attendance at work.
    • Describe your working practices for instance you may want to clarify your expectations regarding attendance at work and payment for non-attendance during a period of adverse weather conditions, if you are a retail business then customer service and cash handling will be important to you and if you are a catering business then you will want to ensure your employees are familiar with your rules associated with their health and hygiene.
  • Written in Plain English
    Written, in plain English, by an experienced HR Practitioner, your employee’s will find the content easy to understand. If you have employees whose first language is not English I can arrange for your Employee Handbook to be translated into the appropriate language(s).
  • Presentation
    The presentation of the final product will be considered at the drafting stage as this will affect how I lay out the content and should be consistent with the tone of the handbook. Options for presentation include: printed i.e. ring binders and bound booklets and electronic i.e. intranet, internet, or e-mail (electronic versions are much easier and quicker to update and republish).Your Employee Handbook will be provided in the format you choose for instance Microsoft Word or Publisher or HTML and will be delivered to you via Email.If you choose to go ahead with printed copies of your Employee Handbook you are then able to arrange with your usual printer to print and bind the document or you can produce the document in house. Alternatively I have a number of clients who are printers who would be happy to provide a quote for the work.
  • Remain Up To Date
    Where any statutory requirements are amended within 12 months of completing your employee handbook I will notify you and update the document free of charge. Where any company policies or custom and practice dictate a change to the content I will provide a quote based on my normal hourly rate.

How Do We Get Started?

I will meet with you to discuss your Employee Handbook in detail. Once I have met you and understand the scope of the work, I will provide a quote based on the amount of time involved to complete and implement your Employee Handbook.

How Much Does The Service Cost?

My fees for producing your Employee Handbook will depend on where you are now with your HR policies and how much detail needs adding to that. So I’ll need to look at what you have now and talk to you about your expectations before quoting a price to you.

If you have all the policies you need in place and my job is simply a case of updating it all, where necessary, to comply with current employment legislation then that would take a small amount of time and the costs may be as little as £250.

If you have very little in place and are looking for me to recommend policies then, once written, my proposals would need reviewing by your senior management team and any recognised trade union. That process would involve a substantial amount of my time and therefore the cost would be much higher.
