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
What We Have In Place
  • We currently have theory of change, mission statement, job description, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have staff who can support in the employee handbook, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,430 , allowing us to directly put this money into programming.

We are grateful to have the opportunity to move from an all volunteer organization to contractors to know staff! As such, we want to make sure that we are building good infrastructure to support our staff so that they are familiar with our practices and our culture.
