The Idea

March 4, 2010

The idea behind this blog is to share some of my experiences and insights related to working for someone else. With about 10 years of corporate experience and a Master’s in Business, I often find I see the employee experience differently than many people around me. My friends or coworkers regularly come to me for help, either to talk through a situation or ask for advice, and I would like to share these experiences with you. I hope you find my writing interesting and helpful!

Why “The Employee Handbook?” Well, the traditional definition of an employee handbook according to Wikipedia is that it “details guidelines, expectations and procedures of a business or company to its employees.” This is a very top-down approach to how an employee must follow policies and procedures. I want this blog to be a resource for how to be an employee, from the employee’s perspective. Wish me luck!
