Updating Your Employee Handbook to Comply With Recent Changes
Keep your company protected with a foolproof employee handbook.
Most employers were unprepared for the changes brought about by the pandemic and the concurrent political climate.

Today, many employees demand that they continue to work remotely and have redefined what they expect of employers. This change has led to unforeseen challenges that contributed to the great resignation.

These are some of the contributors to the perfect storm.
