Handbook For Your Office

Does your office currently have a student employee handbook/ manual? Now is a great time to review and update it, or create a new one. Consider providing your handbook in multiple formats that are easily accessible to the student workers as well as the staff who work with them. Formats can include PDF, printed copy, web format, and/or orientation and training videos.
