How can my law firm remain productive in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic? How can we support our partners, associates, paralegals, and administrative staff who now must work remotely for extended periods of time? These are the questions on the minds of every firm leader across the country.
The answer may come as a surprise: embrace the work-life blend championed by your firm’s 20- and 30-something-year-old professionals—that is, lean into the wisdom of the Millennial generation (born 1981 to 1996).
As a group, Millennials are socially conscious, collaborative, confident, and diverse. Comfortable blending work with life, these young professionals stand ready to contribute when working outside the four walls of an individual corporate office. Consequently, those law firms that understand how to embrace the Millennial vision of remote work will thrive in the coming months.
