 With the tight job market these days, we as law firm employers need to take a fresh look at issues affecting the retention of employees and creating a productive workforce. Law firms have necessarily moved toward more traditional business models, but as a whole, the legal profession has been slower to adapt the more “human” side of business than other employers. Paying attention to the well-being of our employees is actually a good business practice that leads to greater productivity, especially since we rely on human capital, not machines, for our business. People are the drivers of our success, and profitable law firms understand this and are creating programs for wellness and engagement, our firm included. The law firms that resist such a move will be left behind. As managing partner of our firm’s Philadelphia office and a labor and employment attorney, this issue is at the forefront both with our clients and within our firm.
