Year-End Roundup 2017

By Jeanette Derby, CEO | 12.22.2017

As we approach the end of 2017, it is an ideal time to reflect on the past year with all of its achievements and challenges in the work place and beyond.  Shifting attitudes are at the forefront driving escalated examination and improvement of process requirements, talent acquisition, employee experience, and fiscal management.

Law firms and corporate legal departments always strive to pursue and retain top talent and this year is no exception.  The hiring market is becoming more robust than in recent times, yet even with the desire to supplement staff, law firms remain cautious and continue to scrutinize their every need – even during the process of an active search and after devoting an extraordinary amount of manpower to the selection process.  As technology continues to augment processes, hiring managers are increasingly shifting their talent searches to tech-savvy workers with a high-level of emotional intelligence rather than just a demonstrated skill set. 

This bodes well for contract service providers who help law firms “fill in the gaps” while organizations continue a long and arduous search for the most ideal candidates.  Since it is difficult to qualify an intangible, and with the demand for top talent intensifying, hiring managers are turning to contract staffing as they navigate an intricate search.  To add to the hurdles, management is also faced with the continuation of new and expected employment regulations.    

Legal E Employment Partners continues to make shifts to accommodate client demands and offer hiring enhancement services to serve the legal community’s ever-changing needs to include contract services and contingency placement of staff, management and attorneys which remain a mainstay along with retained Executive Placement and customized Staff Professional Development courses.  Legal E’s dedication to risk-adverse processes reinforces our commitment to providing safeguarded staffing solutions to partner and protect the best interests of our loyal and dedicated clientele.  

It is equally significant to the Legal E professional team that the applicants and contract employees receive welcoming and proper communication throughout their experience working with our organization.  Therefore, we have always encouraged feedback and we are extremely proud to have received exceptionally high ratings from candidates as evident on Yelp, Glassdoor, Facebook, and other sites, and will continue to earn high praises.

To live up to our high marks, and client retention accomplishments, Legal E associates remain steadfast with an unwavering commitment to excellence as we continue to cultivate new avenues to offer top talent and to focus on delivering the best available results.
