EXECUTIVE PRODUCTIVITY COACHING

Productivity is the balance of how well we manage our time, attention, and energy. By making choices in certain ways to manage all three better, we accomplish more of what’s important, while reducing life stressors.  For up to 2 leaders per company, we are offering a 6-session virtual training and coaching on how to manage yourself, manage your time, and manage your priorities.

STRATEGIC PLANNING

This is not the time to take a wait and see approach for your business strategy.  KMS's strategic planning solution, Agile, provides you the opportunity to prepare your business for rapid response decisions required to navigate the current economic environment towards growth.
 
 
 
UTILITIES ASSESSMENT
 
Manufacturing processes can require sizable chunks of energy including cooling and heating, lighting, and of course running the production line.  And that can be a major expense for manufacturers.  However, in many cases, that expense can be reduced. A utility assessment can help.
 
 
 
EMPLOYEE HANDBOOK WITH COVID-19 POLICY ADDENDUM
 

An employee handbook sets your employees up for success.  An employee handbook can also protect your company from employee litigation.  For manufacturers who need an employee handbook, we are offering a legally reviewed handbook with a COVID-19 policy addendum.
