Microsoft Word™ is our primary file format for creating, editing and printing the final employee handbook. Anyone with very basic skills for working with MS Word documents can easily complete this handbook. Once completed, the file can be printed and distributed to employees. Or, the file can be distributed electronically by saving a copy in PDF file format for viewing on multiple platforms and computer devices. PDF versions can be posted on internal web sites or distributed via email.
PDF Employee Handbook
Portable Document Format, or "PDF" is a file format for documents independent of the creation software or operating system. As a result, the document can be displayed or printed on virtually any computer device. The benefit of providing your employees with a PDF version of the final employee handbook is the fact that they can review the document on a PC, MAC, mobile phone or tablet. Creating and/or editing a PDF may require special software, such as Adobe Acrobat Pro (or similar, including some free PDF writing software options). It may be simpler to create the master in MS Word and save a copy as a PDF once completed.
MS Works Template
Microsoft Works™ is a simplified word-processing software, also capable of developing an employee handbook. Formatting options are somewhat limited in comparison to Word.
Regardless of the file format you choose (all options available at the download screen), it is recommended all employees sign a printed copy of the acknowledgement sheet (included), agreeing to abide by the company policies outlined in the handbook.

Benefits of an employee manual
An employee handbook centralizes employment and job-related information for employees. Listing holiday schedules, company policies, procedures, and methods for disciplinary action, keeps the employee informed. New employees can quickly become aware of what to expect in the workplace. This written policy is an excellent form of communication between the employee and employer.
