SHRM Employee Handbook Builder

Availability: In stock

Price: $350.00

Note: You will be able to add or delete states once you log into the builder.


Please note, each subscription to the SHRM Employee Handbook Builder is only valid for one legal entity. If you have separate legal entities in various states, you will need to purchase a handbook builder subscription for each separate legal entity.


The SHRM Employee Handbook Builder (EHB) takes the work out of creating and maintaining an employee reference manual, and offers both digital and printer-friendly access to the output. With state-specific filters and customizable fields offering pre-populated staff policies and procedures, the platform’s drag and drop, step-by-step interface is simple to use. The stock policies offered in the package reflect the latest federal and state workplace compliance guidance, as vetted by the platform’s legal partner, Jackson Lewis. As a subscriber to the EHB, you receive regular alerts for any state or federal law changes that occur during the one-year subscription term.

EHB helps you: 

  • Quickly and easily create a custom employee handbook - creating a custom employee handbook is expensive and time-consuming, with SHRM's EHB, you can include your logo and custom policies at no extra cost!
  • Stay compliant with state and federal policies - staying on top of the latest policy can be overwhelming. We deliver state and federal updates straight to your inbox and automatically update your handbook.
  • Minimize your liability - your handbook is written and designed by leading employment law experts at Jackson Lewis.
  • Save on printing costs with online access for employees - each employee will receive a custom link and login to access their handbook.
  • Avoid time-consuming download and limited access - our handbook builder is fully web-based, and there is no need for any software downloads!

During this one-year period, you can go in and update your employee handbook as necessary and as many times as you need to do so. You will receive a renewal notice when your subscription period is set to expire.

there were some spelling errors but in general it make things easy when creating our handbook. (Posted on 4/15/2018)
Short on formatting features & support Review by Lori
Overall rating
We've had this software for 9 months, and I have rewritten our entire handbook (71 pages) in it. Having template policies that comply with law is really nice, and having recommendations on policies to include is really nice. The software helps you organize your policies into sections, and automatically creates a table of contents.

However, formatting functions are EXTREMELY limited, making the final product difficult to read and appear less than professional:
- you can't control page breaks
- you can't control line spacing
- the online version does have links from the Table of Contents to the various policies, but instead of presenting each policy on a separate page, all the policies run together, one after the other - they have headers, but still not optimal reading
- there is no index function
- the only search function is the one in your web browser

In addition, there is no user manual or online help. The only way to obtain help is to contact BLR, and while the reps have been very nice, they are not always very knowledgeable.

Best Thing Ever Review by Ron
Overall rating
I produced our Company Handbook in 2 days!! What used to take weeks, took minutes with research and appropriately written articles provided by the HB Builder and associated law firm. For less than a dollar a day, you receive updates as occurring that take only a few minutes to incorporate and republish. We recently experienced an NLRB review of our old Handbook--it wasn't pretty as they criticized our "overly broad" language in several of our articles. The HB Builder provided language compliant with Federal and State Requirements to fix our problems. The HB Builder also lets you add (or actually adds for you) any variations in state laws for states you select--all in one package. Needless to say my employee handbook carpal tunnel syndrome is healing nicely thanks to SHRM Employee Handbook Builder. It pays for itself simply by being web-accessible--no printing necessary. You can change it every day if you need to with no fuss/no muss, and no extra charge! (Posted on 7/12/2017)

Difficult to log in to and limited input options. Review by Steven

Once you are in the builder is easily navigated. The two major issues are the ability to log into the site and what information can be added to your handbook.

Logging in can not be done from the BLR site. You need to be logged into SHRM and go through a series of links. The link sent to me from BLR for the shortcut and the link listed in the purchased from SHRM Store do not work.

Adding information in a format other than text is impossible (as stated by the BLR Tech Support Team). I have an image of an emergency evacuation plan and it can not be uploaded/pasted and there for would not be part of the table of contents. I can print the individual documents I want added but the published version on line will be incomplete. (Posted on 2/15/2017)
