“Defending an employee lawsuit through discovery and ruling on a motion for summary judgment can cost $75,000 – $125,000. If you lose summary judgment (more often than not), expect to spend $175,000 – $250,000 to take your case to an uncertain jury trial.”
~ Society of Human Resources Managers (SHRM)

I have successfully built an Employee Manual for my Narcotic Treatment Program. A Manual that I am extremely pleased with. I was also very pleased with the accompanying personnel forms, thanks. I enjoyed and developed the Manager’s Procedures Guide for my Supervisors. Out of this came a supervisor training. I strongly believe that buying the Employee Manual Builder is the best way I ever invested $147 in my lifetime to date.

Overkill? Maybe…

This may seem crazy, but think about it…  After being in business for 25+ years, we’ve been through a lot, seen worse, and we’ve gathered and responded to customer requests for a variety of policies and procedures that are real issues in their workplaces. Maybe in yours too.

Not just a bunch of dumb rules

Some companies create rule-driven cultures that give management the feeling that things are under control, but actually squelch creativity and continue “business-as-usual.” We’re done with that! All of the policies we’ve included have purpose and been edited and updated to mindfully address how to handle a given situation — in this century!

An important management education

The policies and the spirit behind them are all there, even if you don’t use all of them. The education alone is worth it and it includes what you need to know so you’ll do the right things right as a manager and a leader — this ounce of prevention fends off a ton of distraction, expense and time!

How to create and express your HR benefits, expectations & policies consciously and clearly

When we first hired the consultants to help develop Employee Manual Builder 20+ years ago, I told them I wanted technically correct HR policies as well as experience and wisdom woven throughout to help business owners to better manage their people. Take the best of our experiences working for others, correct the crappy styles we endured along the way, as well as apply many great new ideas fit for running companies today. What about tattoos, piercings, gifts, office sex, cell-phone use, email…? We’re all about being up-front with expectations, communicating procedures, and addressing a variety of what-if scenarios. Today, Employee Manual Builder is the best ever! For both employers and employees, it feels awesome to know that so much has been considered, positively addressed and constantly updated. Now you have it!

More than an ordinary employee policy manual

By mindful, we refer to people who currently practice and continue to research business management, study human nature and are extraordinarily experienced with people skills.

We work with experts who also look deeper into human nature as well as the the psyche of people to create a “conscious” employee policies & procedures handbook that also contributes to your company culture. Sure, Employee Manual Builder is technically correct in every way, yet we envision more…

We added “Please” and “Thank You” in about 150 places

Employees are not children, nor cattle, nor slave labor… they are intelligent people who are there to work for you. Treat them nicely, yet firmly and fairly, and they will respect you and do a better job.

Who live, eat, sleep HR for their clients!

While many business managers have relied upon Employee Manual Builder to protect their businesses with well-written employment policies, many professional HR consultants have also blessed these policies and procedures as excellent practices to put in place for every successful company.

“I wanted to tell you how easy the Employee Manual Builder is to use. The Manual’s reference to the law is a wonderful reminder of the details we may forget when writing, and the number of options given for specific policies is terrific. The software gave me answers to policies I never even thought of!”
~ Joyce Baywood, HR Consultant, Bethany Beach, DE

Yes! I am extremely happy with your product. I had an ancient floppy disk version sitting on the shelf. I downloaded and installed the upgrade, edited the policies, converted the entire document to PDF, and uploaded it to our web server! Thanks to you and your fine company, I was able to quickly publish a real, editable policy handbook instead of just slapping something together. As a small business consultant, you can be sure that I will recommend your software to others in our sphere of influence.”

By setting clear standards of conduct, you’ll make sure that you and other managers will treat every employee fairly and consistently. A good handbook can improve morale, increase productivity, prevent disagreements, and even keep you out of court.

“We paid $5,000 for a lot less information. Our manual was not complete until now.”

What other business owners & managers report…

This is a crazy long list! Seriously. And we didn’t even solicit them! They all wrote on their own.

This is the second time I have purchased the software. The product surpasses others of its type available.
~ Daniel C. Overton, President – CEO, E.L.A. Security, Inc.

As a small business consultant, I used one of your products on my first assignment and it made a 6,526% return for my client in 3 weeks. Here’s the story: On my first consulting contract, I worked with a health and fitness operation that had approximately 3 full-time and 12 to 20 part-time employees throughout a typical year. I asked if there was any sort of employee manual or if the employees had employment contracts. The answer to both questions was no. I immediately went out and bought your Employee Manual Builder software and spent the next week editing a manual to fit this business. It was remarkably easy to doing and very comprehensive. I gave them to the business owner and they had all the employees read and sign the documents. A few weeks later, one of the employees was accused of sexually harassing one of the customers. After a thorough and fair investigation, the employee was confronted and admitted the charges. The employee was dismissed and was not able to work in a wide enough geographic area to avoid a repeat of the occurrence. During the investigation, the sponsor of the young woman threatened to pull her business and go elsewhere. This act would have cost the business $60,000 in revenues and probably $5,000 fighting the employee. Instead, the entire matter was resolved peacefully and equitably. With roughly a $150 investment, I was able to save my client a sure loss of $65,000. By my calculation, that’s a 6,526% return on investment. I can’t wait to try out some of your other products.
~ Bruce Dewberry, The Dewberry Company

“My overall evaluation is that EmployeeManualBuilder is a remarkable value. Its use should save thousands of dollars in the development of an employee manual, even if an organization chooses to extensively revise the materials included in the package. Although it is easy to nitpick over 150 policies and find a few points of disagreement, the overall package is most impressive. Any organization regardless of size should be able to find value in this product.”
~ Jay C. Thomas, a senior consultant in Portland, Oregon… From a recent 3-page review from Personnel Psychology “Book Reviews”

With EmployeeManualBuilder, I had 30 pages done in two days. I love it. It covers everything from absenteeism to vacation policies. It even had pre-written employment applications.
