Hiring quality employees is an important part of growing a successful law firm. Lawrina shared some helpful law firm employee recruitment tips in a recent blog.
People want to work for a company that values them and makes them feel like they belong. Lawrina says, "According to one report, a sense of belonging is at the top of the list of what employees want in their ideal work environment. It is therefore vital to clearly define your culture and outline specific goals you want to achieve in order to bring extra value to your company and improve the quality of life for your employees."
Show your employees you value them through the benefits you offer, competitive compensation, diversity, and company values. According to Lawrina, you should show potential hires what you have to offer them through content on your website, job ads, and social media.
Research frequently about new benefits and policies other businesses are adopting to make their employees happy. It can be easy to stick with what you've been doing and forget that is important to adapt and grow.
Another way to recruit talented individuals is by connecting with local colleges and universities. Lawrina advises that you interact with academic institutions by keeping them up to date on your open job opportunities, attending networking events and career fairs, and creating internship positions to mentor students. Having a reputation as a firm that supports and fosters the talent of college and university students can be a powerful thing for your firm and open up your job pool.
