Our final workshop in the Spring series — H.R. 101 — brought back  Karen Bender , this time joined by Sharon Egan of QTI.

H.R. isn’t for everyone, but as the Founder of your startup there, are rules and regulations you should implement and be aware of on day one of starting your company.

Content to think about in your handbook includes: Message/tone from the Founders, company history/visions/values, nondiscrimination and no harassment statement, company culture overview, commitment to employees, holiday & “leave” policy, expense policy, equal employment clause, stock option policy, non traditional startup benefits, etc.. This will evolve overtime.
