ABSTRACT
This study, by a well-known student of the subject, presents a comparison of the readability changes in employee handbooks since Flesch first heightened interest in the subject in 1949. It appears than there has been some improvement in the readability of employee handbooks, although much is still left to be desired. Interestingly, the firms which had the most read able handbooks in 1949 also had the most readable ones in 1964. This article is printed with the permission of Personnel Psychology, in which it will appear this Winter.
