Some law firms are moving to a hybrid working schedule to accommodate their law firm team and the pandemic. According to Andrea Williams's Attorneyatwork.com article, here are some tips on creating a thriving hybrid working environment for you and your firm.
Mentoring and training new employees can be difficult, especially with a hybrid work schedule. You and your team will need to ensure you have the technology and training schedule to set up new employees for success. Consider creating a training schedule for the new hires first two weeks to help them and your team succeed. Utilize video conferencing, screen sharing programs, and even phone calls when training new employees.
Regularly check on your new hire and ask if they need further instruction on their new training.
Encourage your team to reach out to your new hire and offer to answer questions or concerns the new hire has.
Ensure you and your team have the technology to serve clients when working from home or in the office. You will want the clients' information to be secure and only accessible through a safe network. You and your team might want to add a two-factor authentication when accessing their email, client information, or whatever program you utilize for success.
From Google to Outlook, most software companies offer apps that you can download for two-factor authentication on your smartphone. Let employees know they shouldn't use free public WIFI when working.
