Flexible and family
The competitive advantage for organisations in the legal sector
The legal sector continues to face many challenges to its traditional operating practices. Typically, staff will work long hours, and the constant fight to maintain a good work-life balance is no secret. Perhaps more so than in other industries, there is scepticism about whether or not truly flexible and agile working is an achievable goal for many organisations. When your business relies so heavily on responding to clients' needs, it's inevitably not always easy to leave a little early one day, or work remotely on a regular basis.
Yet, the demand for more flexibility is there. And there are a few firms in particular who are leading the way in this area.
