Every local government organization has a handbook for employees. But if you want to maximize your handbook to support an efficient and successful environment, there are a few points to consider.
According to the International City/County Management Association, there are several reasons to prioritize managing your employee handbook.
First, it lays out your organization’s policies and procedures so your employees can be successful on the job. Policy manuals can also protect government organizations in legal scenarios.
A handbook means you gave your employees the tools and information they need to comply with your policies.
Finally, local government handbooks can streamline your work environment and reduce confusion in your organization. This sets everyone up to be as successful as possible.
So how do you develop a city policy manual that works for you and your team?
