Led by Pauline Freegard, Verdigris Consulting
All our lives have been disrupted, and core values and priorities have been well and truly challenged. Gone are the familiar commuting routes and treadmill of long hours in the office. Possibly it’s long hours at home but many people in working in high-pressure roles, not least lawyers, may now be questioning their work/life balance. What do they really want in an employer, and what does the ideal working week look like now?
Who, What, When and How are key questions for those in law now reflecting on their legal career. Those are the questions Law Firms have to answer well, to retain and attract legal talent. The job market is more flexible now in some ways but we are working within a challenged and volatile economy for the foreseeable future.
Pauline Freegard leads this session and offers insights from her MBA research project examining the intrinsic motivations (the ‘why’) of support staff and lawyers. Answering the question of how best to harness those for long term success. The casual conversation at the water cooler just isn’t an option for now, so how are firms going to ensure that their culture is kept strong, staff feel connected and supported?
Learn how law firms are addressing new issues in retaining and supporting staff in the new working set-up, and what is it that really motivates this sector? Including aspects to consider when competing for talent.
