Essential Communication Tools - Employee Handbook and Training Manual

Being in the health and fitness industry isn’t always filled with rainbows and unicorns. Most business owners and entrepreneurs find themselves up against a rock and a hard place – the lack of time, money, confusion, uncertainty, and frustration all play into your daily challenges. Nevertheless. . . 

Having a (Fitness Industry) specific Employee Handbook and Training Manual is one of the most important communication tools you can have between your company and your employees. Not only does it set forth your expectations for employees, but it also describes what they can expect from the company.

If you're one of the fitness facilities without an Employee Handbook, and with employee lawsuits on the rise in 2021, you can't wait any longer to establish effective communications with your employees. Just one lawsuit could be enough to close your doors. If you think your insurance company will stand behind you, think again.

A properly written Employee Handbook can protect employers by clearly stating the policies and procedures that can prevent liability.

If you’re one of the fitness facilities without a Training Manual, you can be assured that your competition has one. Having a good employee training manual at your fingertips can be priceless. Not just any training documentation will do, though. A good employee training manual gives a set of instructions that will improve the quality of a job, process, or task done by an employee.

As you know, putting together an Employee Handbook and Training Manual takes a great deal of time and effort.
