    Best Practices for Form I-9 Compliance

    $299.00

    All employers must properly and timely complete a Form I-9 for every new employee hired in the United States. But, that’s not as easy as it sound!  And employers can make costly mistakes without realizing it.  To avoid liability, employees who process Form I-9s should be trained on what to do, and how to do it.  We can help!

    In this session, we discuss how to properly complete Form I-9s, how to handle the I-9 process for remote employees, and the best practices for correcting Form-I-9 errors.  We also explain the penalties for non-compliance and how to conduct an internal audit before the government comes knocking at your door.

    Performance Management with a Modern Spin

    $199.00

    Some employers have stopped conducting performance reviews. Why? They think they take too much time, and are ineffective. But, that does not have to be the case. The “modern” approach to performance management focuses on collaboration and teamwork. The goal is to “save” the employee, and not prepare to get rid of them. 

    In this engaging and interactive webinar, we explain why traditional strategies do not deliver the results employers seek, and offers tools and best practices to drive positive performance and a healthy workplace culture.

    We only offer this session once year.  Don’t miss it!
