What is The Company Employee Handbook?

Great question! The Company Employee Handbook contains all the good stuff that we live by as a team. From policies to benefits, this provides go-to guidance on what is expected of and afforded to everyone on the team. It is a series of living documents that will grow and change as we do.

Why does it matter?

The Employee Handbook is in place to codify the principles that we stand for as a team (e.g., fostering diversity and inclusion; creating a workplace free from harassment and discrimination). While we aim to maintain our agility so that we can best adapt towards our goals without bureaucratic systems getting in the way, we do want to build a simple and straightforward structure that guides our growth.

What's in the Employee Handbook?

Here's a quick overview with links to all the pieces that make up our Employee Handbook:

  • Our Policies and Benefits
    As a note, these Cards represent the high-level synthesis of our policies. The fully outlined policies are uploaded on each of the Cards and will be available in your documents in our HR software once you have signed the policies.

  • Our Workplace Guidelines
