Get Your Employee Handbook Acknowledgement Form Signed Online

By: Steve Stormoen / Friday, January 31, 2014

You need all your team members to sign an Employee Handbook Acknowledgement Form, for legal compliance and risk mitigation, and also to be certain employees are fully aware of company policies.

Traditional paper employee handbooks are too expensive, too wasteful, and too inefficient. Take the printing cost for a modest 20-page handbook, then multiply that by every employee at your company. The costs get outrageous quickly—and you’ll have to pay it again and again each time you update any company policy, even though all you need is that signed Employee Handbook Acknowledgement Form. If your business employs a remote workforce or has several locations, you can add shipping expenses and weeks of delays to that fiasco.

So how can you turn this stone-age expense into an efficient, 21st century HR process? Easy: get your Employee Handbook Acknowledgment Forms signed online with RightSignature electronic signature software.

Employee Handbook Software and Electronic Signature Software

Obtaining employees’ approval on a handbook doesn’t have to be a pain. Also known as a company handbook or employee manual, an employee handbook contains important information about company policies on employment status, nondiscrimination, trade secrets, termination, and other subjects on which you and your employees must have a signed agreement. The solution, then, is to produce a small business employee handbook that can be sent and signed as a digital document, quickly and inexpensively. To that end, we’ve provided the free Employee Handbook Acknowledgement Form template, above, to help you get the process started.
