  • Corporate identity guidelines
  • Tools

Here are some more interesting ones:

The Ropes at Disney (1943)

Interestingly constructed with a rope going throughout the document; women at the time had 10 sick days and men only 5.

Disney Lot Map

Steam (2012)

A fun read on the flat organization front and approach to employee development.

When to communicate

The Motley Fool

Website designed for easy policy information dispersal.

Communication Methods and Stack

Big Spaceship

A company with a portion dedicated into the handbook justifying having dogs in the office.


I have found two tech companies that have published their handbook online:


A remote-only company that's developing an alternative to github for IT development. The company is dedicated to being open and transparent, and by default all they make everything publically available (except for "financial information, legal, job applications/compensation/feedback and partnerships with other companies.")

You can find the source code of their handbook here.


A cryptography company that creates an app that allows you to log into anything where Clef is installed without requiring a username or password.
