Welcome to Work Rules Writer!

Why Work Rules are important:

1). When done right, the most critical behaviors are bulleted on a one or two page document. Your critical behaviors could be buried deep within your Employee Handbook, assuming you have one.

2). When Work Rules are a one or two page document, they are easier to change and communicate, rather then updating your Handbook.

3). Work Rules help define company culture. Culture is what optimizes your resources to achieve the mission.

4). Work Rules create a sense of belonging and shared expectations among employees.

5). Work Rules become strong documentation to support employee actions such as progressive discipline, and or termination.
