Management tools to keep employees on the path to success
Many of the problems that arise in the workplace present themselves as discipline issues, but, in actuality, are the result of an ill-defined company culture. Luckily, you have free access to “The Manager’s Playbook: Company Culture,” a guide designed to help your practice articulate and define a culture that fosters higher productivity, team cohesion, and a happier work environment.
“Culture is simply a shared way of doing something with a passion” – Brian Chesky, Co-founder & CEO, Airbnb
In this complimentary guide, we walk you through how to build a company culture from your core values up. More importantly, our Manager’s Playbook walks you through the most difficult aspect of company culture– how to get your team to adopt your values and put them into daily practice.
In addition to The Manager’s Playbook, the CEDR Knowledge Base is full of forms that help you in the day-to-day management of your employees such as:
- Employee Concern Forms– which all employees should have access to at all times
- Corrective Action Forms– which should be filled out and timestamped after each disciplinary warning
- Performance Evaluations– that keep your entire team on track
- The FIRR Method Tutorial– a guide to a method of conflict resolution that gets results and provides legal protections for your business

Effective hiring made easier
Difference makers are employees who excel and contribute in ways that others might not even consider, and you deserve to have a team full of them! Located inside your Knowledge Base, CEDR’s Hiring Guide can help you find a team of difference makers– those employees that make your practice a better place to work.
Your Hiring Guide helps you weed out imposters and attract superstars. With expert-written job descriptions, behavioral interview guidance, and a fool-proof onboarding process that can increase employee turnover by 58%, you’ll want to consult CEDR’s Hiring Guide even before the hunt for the perfect applicant begins.

Terminations and separations made easier
If there is one guide in the Knowledge Base that HR Experts wish every employer would look at long before they actually need it, it’s the Separation Guide. Employee exits can be risky, and, all too often in small practices, the result of a quick escalation that catches management off guard. Know what to do before an employee storms out, or before you get a text from an employee that says “I quit” with help from your Separation Guide.
If you learn how to hire difference-makers and adopt the included management tools to fit your needs, hopefully, you won’t be saying goodbye to too many employees. Still, if you are managing people, turnover is inevitable. People move, change careers, things happen and when they do, the guide will walk you through how to make the most of each separation and turn each exiting employee into a valuable opportunity to learn more about your practice.
In addition to the Separation Guide, you will find a host of resources in the Knowledge Base that provide legal protections during employee transitions including
- The Exit Interview Form
- The Termination Checklist
- The Voluntary Resignation Form
- A Guide to Maintaining Calm and Dignity During Terminations
