HR DEPT.: Handbook, Bye-Bye

from Forbes

Throw out your old, out-of-date, off-putting employee handbook and start over. That's the advice of Human Workplace CEO Liz Ryan in a Forbes.com column. Typical employee manuals do more to encourage employment-practices liability claims than discourage them, she writes, typically because they are written so poorly ("grotesque, impenetrable legalese") and treat employees as prospective felons, providing long lists of things to do to get fired. "You have to shift the frame in your handbook from 'Don't you dare misbehave!' to 'Here's what we think you will find helpful as a new employee here.' One person can talk about the dress code — not spelled out in fussy stitch-level detail that insults the talented and capable-of-self-dressing people you employ, but in general terms. Another person can talk about the company's commitment to equal employment opportunity." more
