The construction industry is a fast paced, constantly changing world. Combine that with the Coronavirus pandemic that has taken over the world, and it makes for a very unpredictable and uncertain business landscape.
With this in mind, it’s crucial that your business is ‘built on strong foundations’ not just to survive during this time, but to thrive. The core foundations in operating a successful business in the construction industry is the people. Without good people, most businesses would not exist. A good group of individuals that make up a hard working and ambitious team is worth its weight in gold.
To reach goals and deadlines, it is important that the people that make up your team understand their roles and the company rules. The best way of doing this is through a Contract of Employment and an Employee Handbook.
These outline the contractual obligations of both the business and the employee as well as providing details on key HR policies so that everyone is on the same page. So this may sound boring, but taking the time to get the basics right when it comes to preparation will save you a lot of time and money when issues arise.
The key benefits of having a Contract of Employment and Employee Handbook in place are:
Sets the standard and saves time
Protects your sensitive information and your customers
It helps your Managers manage
So that’s it!
Simply by putting into place and keeping your contracts of employment and staff handbook up to date you can gain all of the above benefits for your business.
