On the show today we talk about millennials and law firm culture with an article from Law.com, and then we go deep on culture with lawyer, marketer & author, Eric Farber.
5 Challenges Millennials Pose to Law Firm Culture
Today’s Hot Take is from Law.com, “5 Challenges Millennials Pose to Law Firm Culture” by Frank Ready:
1 – Communication – Social media to connect with clients while the non-Millennials prefer to send paper airplanes? “It’s a real struggle in the organization between the partners that use social media and those that don’t”
2 – Culture – Millennials are going to question the culture BEYOND just the billable hours expected. It’s not just a performance metric.
3 – Collaboration – Open work spaces? Millennials all want to be collaborative? Maybe this is more like Slack, or project management software where everyone has eyes on a case.
4 – Incentives – Beyond just salary, is there a way to help pay off law school debt for new partners?
5 – REMOTE – Millennials all want to balance work and life and require and desire a chance to work remotely.
While this article was written with millennials in mind, all of this stuff is relevant more than ever right now – remote working, networks and social media – it’s more important than eer to be sure you are meeting the needs of both clients and staff in this ever changing and rapidly moving environment.
