KWW shareholder Jaime Kolligian offers employers a practical and proactive approach to address and manage workplace performance by Finding Common G.R.O.U.N.D. between management and employees.  During this highly interactive workshop, Jaime will integrate key legal and practical considerations that often arise when managers, supervisors and HR professionals tackle performance discussions with employees.


Over the course of her legal career, Jaime has learned that when it comes to workforce management, employers ultimately want the very best from their employees, and they also want to see their employees be successful.  To achieve excellent results, employers need to invest more time and attention to performance issues early in the employment relationship and engage in a regular dialogue with employees along the way.


Attendees of this workshop will learn best practices to identify and document performance objectives, shortcomings, goal setting, and when and how to have tough conversations with employees about sub-par performance.

Hire – bringing the power of G Suite to recruiting

If you need more employees, use Gmail and Google Calendar, and want to recruit better, then check out this free webinar about Hire from Google.

Hire is a recruiting app that helps distribute jobs, identify and attract candidates, build strong relationships and efficiently manage the interview process.

No more bouncing between different software to schedule interviews, send emails, track candidate pipelines, check reports, grade candidates or set up whatever hiring stage you need – coding tests for engineers, onsite presentations for sales jobs – because Hire puts everything you need in one place using tools you are already familiar with, Gmail and Google Calendar.

To learn more about Hire, how it can work for you, and why saving time isn't the only benefit*, sign up for this free webinar with Charles Hsieh from Google, which will include a live demo.

Benefits of Hire include, but are not limited to: 

  • faster hiring
  • happier candidates
  • saving even more time by not having to learn new software
  • not banging your head on a table when you lose your #1 candidate because you were a day late with your offer.

#MeToo includes employers

What employers can expect in the #MeToo era of sexual harassment awareness

With all of the high profile harassment cases in the media, companies are coming under new scrutiny for how they respond to claims of sexual harassment. Many are labelling these events as a significant (and likely historical) cultural shift, where victims of sexual harassment feel emboldened to speak out and where the accused are being held accountable for their behavior in career ending fashion. In this Webinar, we will focus on how and why sexual harassment has come into the national spotlight, we will review what the law says about sexual harassment, and we will talk about what employers can expect in the aftermath of #MeToo and how to prepare for what is to come.
