I was attending a presentation and the manager said at least ten times, "I behoove you to read the policies. The first time I heard it, I thought I had not heard it correctly. But then he said it again and again and the audience was primarily educators. It did not sound like the correct use of the word. I have only heard it used in a sentence, "It would behoove you to read the policies."
I think you're right. This manager should say:
"It would behoove you to read the policies" or
"It behooves you to read the policies."
: to be necessary, proper, or advantageous for
- it behooves us to go
: to be necessary, fit, or proper
