This Employee handbook for South African SMEs is designed and written with the employee experience in mind, leveraging this Employee Handbook to attract like-minded talent to your business and defining how you intend to support your employees so they can sparkle on their employee journey, at the same time protecting your business from any potential risks and implementing this document as a tool towards building a great company culture.
Defining WHO you are as a business and HOW you and your employees can work well together, and written in plain English.
The style of the employee handbook follows an unconventional approach. Most employee handbooks are known as the Company/ HR policies and procedures manual or handbook. These are typically filled with lengthy rigid company policies and procedures, forms or standard operating procedures, which employees are mostly only interested in when they have broken a rule and may be potentially facing disciplinary action or poor performance counselling.
💡Who is this employee handbook for?
SMEs and International businesses are regulated by South African legislation and HR best practice. Start-ups, growing organizations and those who are looking to re-invent their existing employee handbooks/ company policy and procedure manuals.
