Creating Your Handbook From Our Template

Detailed instructions are included which walk you through the process. Basically you review the policies, keeping all that apply to your business and deleting the others. For some policies there are multiple option policies (Smoking is allowed on the premises, Smoking is not allowed on the premises, Smoking is allowed only in specific areas on the premises, and etc). Choose the option that applies and delete the others. You will find clearly marked notices for areas that require information (phone numbers, hours and etc.). Complete the information and delete the notices. You can update the table of contents by deleting all matching topics you deleted in the handbook, and applying page numbers accordingly. If you do not want a table of contents, you can delete it all together.

Follow the instructions for page setup and you are ready to print and distribute. Note that you can save a copy as a PDF and place it (or the original file) on your company website or server for access by employees.

You are done - It's that easy!
