SOPS (Standard Operating Procedures) are manuals, documents, or handbooks that detail how to do your job. An employee handbook makes perfect sense to reduce the onboarding time to train a new employee. Nothing falls between the cracks and details can be updated for accuracy.
SOPS are integral for large operations, but are just as critical for a one-person powerhouse or small business. Maybe you pride yourself on having “really good notes” but at some point, those notes will have to look a little more official.
