Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, W-P-G consults with public and private employers, law firms, associations, and non-profit clients throughout the northwest on workplace practices, labor relations, expert witness testimony, workplace investigations, executive search, and compensation systems.
W-P-G has deep expertise in public sector labor relations and contract negotiations, and it provides expert witness testimony in labor and employment matters, appearing in meritorious cases on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendents.
As human capital strategists, W-P-G assists clients in designing and implementing workplace practices that enhances engagement and minimizes liability in both union and non-union settings, but preserves operating flexibility for managers. In addition, W-P-G frequently is referred by outside counsel to help clients investigate and resolve workplace complaints or disputes. We also provide support for executives responsible for workplace practices who simply want a sounding board that has decades of executive-level human resources and labor relations experience.
To help ensure strategic priorities becomes reality, W-P-G undertakes interim executive and executive search assignments for CHRO/SVP/VP Human Resources, senior Labor Relations and Employee Relations positions and in-house Labor and Employment Law Counsel, areas in which W-P-G principals have subject matter expertise.
W-P-G applies its in-depth knowledge of workplace practices, labor and employee relations, and the law of work in the following practice areas:
