What’s Inside the New Knowledge Base?

HR knowledge sharing like you have never experienced before

So many of you have already figured out the benefits of using HR Vault. From having all your handbook policies easily accessible to all employees, to making confidential notes on employee files, to the legal benefit of the electronic timestamp signature function, HR Vault is a pretty effective HR tool that offers free, unlimited HR storage for the life of your business and so much more.

Today, take a moment to introduce yourself to HR knowledge sharing like you have never experienced before in the newest and fastest-growing section of your HR Vault– the CEDR Knowledge Base.

In order to do that, sign in to your HR Vault account. If you are new to HR Vault, you can sign up here. Then, from HR Vault’s dashboard, look for the Knowledge Base tab:

Once you click, you’ll enter the brand-new CEDR Knowledge Base.

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:

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.

In addition to the hiring guide, the Knowledge Base also houses a long list of forms that help you find standout hires while staying compliant including:

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

Keep in mind, this is just a peek

The only way to get all the valuable information in the Knowledge Base is through your HR Vault login.  Remember, the CEDR Knowledge Base will be continuously restocked with new forms and guides that make management easier and help your practice operate within current regulations.

If you’re not sure how to add any of these forms to an employee’s file in HR Vault, please watch this video.
