Welcome to yet another engaging ShiftSixOS webinar, titled: Building a Dream Team: Strategies for Attracting and Retaining the Best Legal Talent. This session delves into the most effective strategies for not only attracting but also retaining top-tier talent for your law firm’s legal team. Throughout this webinar, we will explore key aspects such as crafting compelling job postings, identifying the most sought-after benefits within the legal community, nurturing a sense of purpose and fulfillment in your employees’ roles, and much more.


Why Watch?

Many lawyers today are finding it challenging to find staff to support their law firms. Paralegals especially are in short supply, so what can you do to combat this? Is there anything you can do to give your firm a leg up against the competition and snag that much needed talent? In our webinar we address these issues, and provide tips and suggestions of how to attract talent and keep them happy. A high turnover rate can be expensive for your firm, so it is best to do what you can to build an attractive culture for your candidates.


What to Expect

• How to craft compelling Job Postings – You probably already know the basics, but modern candidates are expecting more transparency than you might be used to. Find out what you can include to earn their trust and get them to apply.
• What Benefits Candidates are Expecting – Once again we know you are familiar with the standard set of benefits, but expectations have changed a little since the covid pandemic. Include these benefits to attract top tier candidates to your law firm.
• How Work-Life-Balance Makes a Difference – Practicing law is known to be a grueling career path that requires a lot of time and commitment to succeed. Although this is still true, more and more lawyers are tired of the grind and want to focus more on family life. Learn how you can support your employees so they can get their work done more quickly and efficiently, so they can spend time with their families.
• Providing Employees Career Growth & Development – Set your employees up for success by helping them to continue their education. Whether they are choosing to focus on a particular area of law, or wanting to improve general skills, they will be more likely to stay onboard with your firm if they feel a sense of growth and have opportunities for advancement.
• Creating a Sense of Meaning & Purpose – Does your firm create opportunities for pro-bono work? What is your firm’s overall mission? Here we go over how firms can help foster a sense of meaning in their work and be proud of their firm’s mission.
• Attracting Candidates With LegalTech – Modern candidates expect to be equipped with modern tools and use technology to make their job easier and more efficient. Here we include tips of how to use technology to attract the best candidates.
