Make Sure Things Get Done®
A partner in a law firm has a lot to worry about. Business development, client relations, case management, and ensuring high quality work to mitigate the risk of malpractice leave little time for training and mentoring young associates.
Most firms have more work than they can handle, and that work can’t be done without people. It is no secret that retaining associates is one of the biggest challenges facing law firms.
Today’s tight labor market has created an environment where employers are bending over backward to retain their top talent. Companies are looking at pay increases, benefits packages, training opportunities and other perks to keep their employees satisfied and engaged. But they often overlook the most simple and inexpensive way to improve engagement -- an employee recognition program.
Why do some employees seem always to get things done on time and as expected, while others struggle? Is it in their DNA? Is it an organizational culture that condones missed deadlines so that some people do not feel the pressure to perform as well? Are incentives, like bonuses, or penalties, like losing a job, accomplishing their objectives?
