The people that work with you (your employees) need a number of things to do their jobs well, yet none is more important than clarity. If you “tell” your people what you expect of them, that’s a good start, but they have busy lives and busy minds, just like you. So what you need to do is prepare a written job description for each employee that clearly defines your expectations. Much like an employee handbook, the document should address company policies like dress codes, cell phone policies, tardiness, sexual harassment policies, non-solicitation agreements, etc. In addition, you need to define the standards of the job. Once you have these documents completed, assure they are reviewed by your attorney and then give each employee two copies: one for their own record, and one to be signed and dated after they have reviewed and agreed with all components of the document. Once you’ve reached this point of agreement, it no longer becomes a question of what you may or may not have told them. They are now responsible for abiding by each and every article in the written job description.
