Project Details

What We Need
  • Audit of existing Employee Handbook, or internal communications regarding employment policies
  • Edit or creation of a new Employee Handbook, which may include any of the following: Standards of Conduct, Work Schedules, Leave Policies, Termination Policies, Safety and Security, Anti-Discrimination policies, Compensation and Benefits policies, any Non-Disclosure Agreements or Conflict of Interest statements that may apply, and any other pertinent information
Additional Details

We are a small nonprofit expecting significant growth once COVID abates. We currently do not have an employee handbook at all and we are looking to create one from scratch. We would like something that is simple and concise and can address both administrative and manufacturing work environments.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have an Executive Director who is motivated to make this happen, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a blank slate, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,430 , allowing us to keep prices low for our customers and wages competitive for our employees.

Our organization is moving through adolescence and is just beginning to get more organized with regard to employee and volunteer policies and procedures. We know we need to formalize these resources but we have no idea where to start! Having an employee handbook will make us a better and more appealing employer to the new hires we plan to bring on board in the coming year.

Paola is fantastic! She did an amazing job helping us to write an Employee Handbook. She is knowledgeable, efficient, warm, and an absolute joy to work with. She really captured our organizational culture, knew all the right questions to ask, offered insightful suggestions, and helped me think through critical issues. She guided me through the process of recording all of our policies in clear, legally-compliant language in a remarkably short period of time. I am thrilled with the finished product and thoroughly enjoyed the whole project. My only disappointment is that I will miss our meetings now that the project is finished! If you are lucky enough to have Paola take interest in your organization, you should jump at the chance to work with her.
