Course Description:

This course is worth 1 CE. 

These days, everyone is asking how to find good people who want to work, and how to get them to stay. The factors behind The Great Resignation are complicated, but the solution is simple when you apply leadership and strategy.

It all begins with hiring and creating difference makers.

We recognize “difference makers” as self-motivated employees who bring positive energy to an office, embrace new skills, and exhibit adaptive problem-solving for successful results. Existing team members can also experience a fundamental shift when you consider HR as a strategic process.

In this course, presenter Paul Edwards, CEO of CEDR HR Solutions, will explore what top candidates are looking for in an employer, and show you how to best position your practice to raise up current team members and attract more difference makers. Set the vision, multiply people, deliver results!

Learning Objectives:

• Learn function and expectations of a next-level team
• How self-actualization shapes a difference-maker’s work performance.
• What roles Purpose, Mission, and Core Values play in hiring and retention
• What role do HR Policies play in problem solving
• Create precisely what the difference-maker role would look like for your next job listing

550 Practice Management and Human Relations – 1.0 hour

Paul Edwards

I am a business leader and founder with a career spanning over 25 years. Throughout my career, I have gained experience solving HR issues that impact dental & medical practice owners and managers. I'm inspired by the idea that “better workplaces make better lives”, and passionate about helping clients successfully handle employee issues and safely navigate the complex and ever-changing employment law landscape. My experiences have led me to my current role as CEO and Co-Founder of CEDR Solutions.

At CEDR HR Solutions we provide custom, legally compliant employee handbooks, human resources support, and team management software for the dental, medical, and wellness industries. Your business is as unique as you are, and the policies you implement should be a reflection of that uniqueness. There is no “one-size-fits-all” approach to managing your team or your practice, even the way that employment laws are applied to your business will vary based on your business’ location and size. Whatever shape it takes, we want to help you build the practice that you’ve dreamt about — and to make sure that your business and personal interests are protected along the way.
