Our editable Word Administration Guidelines Manual template is thorough and covers common business basics that it are vital for your administration staff and team to know. This guide will help your administrator run the office and it helps everyone know what is expected of them on a day to day basis.

We have included sample policies and procedures that you can edit, add to or remove to make the document suitable for your business.

WHAT IS AN ADMINISTRATION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES MANUAL?

An Administration Policies and Procedures Manual is a document that is utilised by businesses who employ administration staff, or have employees performing administration style tasks to give them a baseline overview of business expectations, task guidelines and office policies.

It is a combination of office and departmental policies, task procedures, genreal company information, chain of command details, location specifics and a variety of personnel / HR need-to-knows.

Typically an administration guidelines document is given to a new staff member when being inducted so they know the basics of their role. It can also be utilised by other staff who are covering administration staff on leave, or given to temp staff to minimise task explanation downtime.

WHY DO I NEED AN ADMINISTRATION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES MANUAL?

The aim of the admin guidelines is to help your admin staff be as efficient as possible, by giving them all they need to know about their job and the office in one clear, succinct document.

If you have admin staff, or people who perform admin type tasks you will benefit from having a guideline in place that gives them clear directions and expectations.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I DON'T HAVE AN ADMINISTRATION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES MANUAL?

Providing clear and concise directions and policies for staff can help retain employees as they will see you respect their role, and have taken the time to make their induction into the business easier and simpler. By not having the admin policies guide in place you increase business risk in lost time and decreased productivity (staff trying to figure out how to do something they maybe haven't done in a long time, or new staff only having verbal training have nothing to reference back to).

Legal, financial or general business information, including tips, general forms, instructions, comments, and templates, no matter how seemingly customized to conform to the laws of your state, is not the same as legal, financial or general business advice, which may be the specific application of laws by lawyers licensed to practice law in your state to the specific circumstances and needs of individuals and entities. Some states have highly specific laws, and our information / forms may not take those specific laws into consideration. docushop is not a law firm and the employees and contractors (including attorneys, if any) of docushop are not acting as your attorneys, and none of them are a substitute for the advice of your own attorney or law firm licensed to practice law in your state.
