Management Training

A hallmark of our practice is our commitment to ensuring clients are fully informed of and trained on applicable employment and labour related laws and best practices. 

We strongly believe the most effective way to assist our clients is to partner with them in training and educating their management teams.  We customize every training program to meet and exceed the needs of our clients, including for example: interactive seminars, role playing, self-taught training material, workbooks and hand-outs, situational analysis, and “how to” approaches to workplace issues.  We always look for opportunities to enable our clients to take over the training programs directly so that their own leaders advance their skills and knowledge. 

We have presented seminars, workshops and training on virtually every workplace-related subject, including (but not limited to):
