Growing your drain cleaning or plumbing business presents many challenges, but building a reliable, trustworthy and dedicated team is usually one of the biggest. Employees must be willing to do everything it takes to do the job, while still staying safe and protecting themselves and your company.

New hires will have questions about workplace policies and procedures, and even long-term staff need occasional guidance. As representatives of your company, you want them to present a positive image of the company to the public. An employee handbook creates a standard of behavior for all employees, whether codes of conduct for attendance or specific safety regulations.

Your company’s policies, values, mission statement and goals should be at the center of your employee handbook, so all staff can familiarize themselves with them. Plumbing and drain cleaning are physical jobs that utilize numerous tools of the trade, and your handbook should reflect your specific safety standards for this work.

If putting this all together sounds daunting, MyTana is here to help.
