Activ Staff Handbook

activ staff handbook part of activ people cloud based hr system

“Handbooks must be kept up-to-date both to remain practically useful and to avoid becoming inconsistent with official guidance, legislation and case law.

The Acas code of practice on discipline and grievance, for example, was updated early last year and in January it published a new guide, Disability discrimination: key points for the workplace.”


When much of your HR is modern and automated, is your staff handbook still an out of date actual book?

In a world where HR legislation changes all the time, HR policies are often either out of date, or costing businesses a small fortune to maintain distribute, even if the changes are only small.

Activ Staff Handbook is a useful add-on for Activ Absence or Activ Appraisals, and forms part of the Activ People HR system.  It allows you to publish and distribute documents to all your staff simply and effectively, with a reminder feature to make sure that unlike emails, your documents are always read.  The software also records when staff have read your documents and records an acknowledgement so you can prove that your policies and procedures were read and understood by your staff.

Most HR teams use the Handbook feature to create a responsive and flexible staff handbook, enabling you to change and distribute employee policies quickly.  However, as it is a complete electronic document management system, you can use it for fun things too, like staff newsletters, club activity etc.  It’s environmentally friendly and the possibilities are only limited by your imagination!
