A comprehensive Employee Handbook is a crucial part of any onboarding process, especially where staff are working remotely, walking your new starters through policies, procedures and other important documentation.

Our industry-standard Employee Handbook app provides new starters with an auditable step-by-step review of company documentation, whilst capturing personal information with a level of security simply not possible with email or print.

Our Employee Handbook app is based on industry-standards used by some of the largest employers in the UK. It comes fully-built and ready to be deployed to your workforce free of charge in a matter of hours – all you need is a Nutshell subscription.

Nutshell makes it incredibly quick and easy to customise this mobile app to your organisation. This is not limited to just your colours and logos – you can change everything about it, from the information you capture to the entire tracking and sign-off workflow.

If you’d like this app integrated with your back-office HRIS software, that’s easy too. Nutshell comes with a range of plug n’ play connectors to back-office products such as Microsoft Sharepoint or Excel.

Send your details to our Customer Success team today and someone will be in touch soon to show you the app in action, give your free access to a trial version and provide information on Nutshell subscription pricing.

"Nutshell enabled us to build our own employee handbook app, which makes onboarding new staff a breeze, particularly in this culture of remote working."

How it works

With Nutshell, taking your business digital couldn’t be easier…

1. Buy a subscription

Your Nutshell Customer Success manager will be your new best friend guiding you through the process.

2. Sit back and relax

We’ll customise your apps to fit your workflow, add your colours and logo… or we can just leave them be.

3. Publish to your workforce

As soon as your staff login to Nutshell, they’ll have access to your customised mobile apps straight away.

4. Kick back and relax (again)

Think of all the fun ways you can spend the time and money you’ve saved not having to chase missing data!

Why Nutshell?

The trouble with off-the-shelf apps is that they don't talk to each other. You need to export and import data from one to another by hand, which is slow and expensive, and defeats the object of going digital in the first place.

Imagine if your Site Diary could pull-in relevant Accident and Close Call reports automatically, or if Timesheets could alert your Fatigue Management app when an employee has exceeded safe working hours all on its own. It can.
