Check out the recent editions of The Williamson Group’s W newsletter!

As we promised in April, the acquisition of The Williamson Group in January means more opportunity to provide you with access to additional materials as a value-added benefit of being a Cowan client. 

W is The Williamson Group’s client newsletter, which provides insights and information on industry trends and developments. We are pleased to share their 2015 first and second quarter releases. 

In the May 2015 edition, entitled “Inspiring Women: Today’s HR Leaders”, read about three female HR leaders as they talk about what effective HR leaders are doing, how they got to these high points in their career, and the advice they have for the generation–of primarily women–that will come behind them.

Also included in this edition:

  • 2015 federal budget update—personal tax changes
  • Group retirement savings plans—a word (or two) on member education
  • Type 2 diabetes—calculating the cost of doing nothing
  • Post-concussive syndrome—an increase in concussions or an increase in awareness?

The July 2015 edition, “Business Matters: Small Focus, Big Rewards”, is hot off the press and takes a closer look at TWG’s Business Matters team, who specialize in working with small-to-midsize organizations. 

Also included in this edition:

  • Participaction – parenting, playtime and the great outdoors
  • To change or not to change – there is no question
  • Retirement planning – providing certainty in uncertain times
  • Closing the gap – protecting employees who are off on WSIB
