It is an employer’s responsibility to communicate the relevant Health & Safety issues that impact an employee, as part of their role within a business. A digital Health & Safety handbook, can be accessed from any device at any time, enabling employees to review the company’s Health & Safety policies on activities, ensuring their safety. As employees need to acknowledge that they have read and understood the Health & Safety handbook and subsequent updates, an audit trail can be produced for the Health & Safety Executive, if required.
A digital employee handbook reduces risk in your business by communicating an always up-to-date version, that is easily accessible on any device. This ensures that employees know what they can and can’t do as part of their contract of employment. Updates can be published immediately and employees will be notified of the changes from the app. Not knowing will no longer stand up in a tribunal.
Communicating what benefits an employee receives as part of their employment contract, increases employee engagement. This in turn:-
An employee benefits handbook is a great way to explain auto-enrolment and it’s implications to employees.
There are a number of benefits in deploying MyEmployeeHandbook in your organisation including:-
No server to manage. No software to purchase and keep up to date. No backups to worry about. No need to manage access for large numbers of remote users.
By having a single copy of your handbooks, you are reducing the risk in the business of employees referring to out of date information in copies of older versions of PDF or Word versions of your handbooks.
Using mail merge style variables and display logic, content can be displayed dynamically based on an employee's role, their employee benefits package or their location.
You are able to use videos and images in your employee handbooks to improve employee engagement. Use videos to explain more complex policies such as auto-enrolment and images to enhance content.
