Technology-Driven Employee Handbook for PEOs Provides Compliance, Customization and Collaboration

PLEASANTON, Calif. and PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ThinkHR, a leader in human and data powered HR services, announced today the next generation of its Living Handbook, the only dynamic, automated employee handbook solution on the market. Developed in collaboration with leading PEO experts, this version of Living Handbook was explicitly designed to ensure compliance and enable better efficiency and collaboration for PEOs and their clients.

The most powerful handbook solution ever built, ThinkHR has helped create more than 132,500 handbooks for organizations across the U.S. PEOs leveraging Living Handbook can deliver a comprehensive employee handbook that is never out of date and always compliant, accounting for the ever-evolving compliance, collaboration and customization needs.

Nathan Christensen, CEO of the newly combined entity of ThinkHR and Mammoth HR, said, “PEOs and their clients face a unique challenge: creating and maintaining an employee handbook that applies a common set of policies to a diverse set of stakeholders. With this release, we are the only company to provide handbook technology specific to the PEO market, allowing PEOs to designate both required policies and policies that their clients can customize. Now, for the first time ever, PEOs and their clients have a full technology-enabled solution for implementing and maintaining these vital workforce documents.”

Rethinking what a handbook should be, Living Handbook supports PEOs and their clients by capturing necessary information, communicating desirable workplace behavior standards and reinforcing company values and culture. Through an intuitive interface, Living Handbook for PEOs makes it easy to deliver policies with PEO-specific language while enabling each client to reflect their brand and customize policies specific to their organization. HR and legal experts, including employment attorneys from Costangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete LLP, write and review the content to keep the language consistent and compliant.

  • Federal & Multistate: Comprehensive handbooks contain all of the federal and state policies that apply to employees and the organization.
