Choosing the right people for the job is a difficult — yet necessary — task, most especially in a law firm. Human capital is one of the most important growth factors for a business. Oftentimes, employees are hired for their education and training but rarely do companies get to assess an individual’s personality, which can say a lot about how they communicate with colleagues and potential clients. We cannot just hire attorneys for their skills; we need employees that are good for our firm’s culture.
In this episode, Andrew Wilcox joins us to talk about his experience in growing a legal search and consulting firm. He discusses the importance of quality staffing, along with the challenges law firms face when it comes to employee retention. He also highlights the need for a skilled leader to keep teams intact.
