Electronic Employee Handbooks: Benefits, Risks and Opportunities
Is your employee handbook still an actual book?
If so, you're living in the paper past.
Converting to a digital handbook will cut costs, make updating easier and—most importantly—erase many of the legal dangers associated with paper handbooks.
But e-handbooks involve more than just transferring written documents into a database. One wrong move can actually inject a host of new legal risks.
How should you make the conversion? … What about the authorization signatures? … Where do you post it (public web? in-house network?)… How do you announce new changes (email? online? paper?) … What about passwords?
On Wednesday, September 7, discover the best practical and legally smart strategies in our newest webinar, Electronic Employee Handbooks: Benefits, Risks and Opportunities. Your trainer, attorney Anniken Davenport, has literally written the book on this subject, Bullet-Proof Your Employee Handbook. And just for attending, you'll receive a copy of that book, plus a recording of her previous webinar on the topic, Employee Handbooks: Required Changes for 2016 and the Most Common Mistakes.
In this fast-paced, 75-minute session, you'll discover everything you need to know about electronic handbooks, including:
- Why you need one
- The 3 things to fix in your current handbook BEFORE you make the conversion
- Step-by-step process for creating an electronic version—from the HR, management and IT perspectives
- Why you should keep the document behind a sign-in page (and exactly what that page should say)
- How to properly announce and distribute each new version
- Why you should include quizzes in your E-Handbook (Plus, discover the 4-question quiz you should REQUIRE employees to take after receiving the handbook link)
- How to track and communicate changes
- What to do if employees have no computer access—or limited language skills
- Proper accessibility standards—especially for disabled employees
- Answers to all of YOUR questions about employee handbooks
Don't get caught off guard! This is where HR and technology collide—and your CEO will expect you to be up-to-date on the correct legal process. Join us on September 7 to learn the practical, easy-to-understand tips for bringing your company policies into the digital age.
