Whether you’re living in the paper past with a printed handbook, or need to create one and don’t know where to start, don’t go at it alone.

On Friday, November 8, discover the best practices and legally smart strategies with Upgrade Your Employee Handbook: The Benefits and Risks of Going Digital. Expert employment lawyer, Anniken Davenport, will lead you through a step-step-by-step process for creating an electronic version that includes the HR, management and IT perspectives.

Creating 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.

Don't get caught off guard! This is where HR and technology collide – join us on November 8 and get up-to-date on how to modernize your employee handbook so it’s easy to access, secure and legally sound.

In this fast-paced, 75-minute session (with Q&A!), you'll discover everything you need to know about electronic handbooks, including:

  • The 3 things to fix in your current handbook BEFORE you make the conversion
  • Why templated handbooks can lead to legal issues
  • Why you should keep the document password protected and with a unique log-in for each employee (and exactly what that page should say)
  • How to properly announce and distribute each new version
  • Why you should include quizzes in your online handbook
  • What to do if employees have no computer access – or limited language skills
  • Proper accessibility standards – especially for disabled employees

Your trainer, attorney Anniken Davenport, has literally written the book on handbooks.
