BTI’s workplace and attorney satisfaction survey, found that 10.1% of attorneys report toxic culture. There appears to be a lack of connection and trust amongst attorneys in toxic cultured firms, which leads to lower retention rates and money lost. Firm culture is also shaped from the cooperation or lack thereof amongst partners. Relationships matter in the workplace because they form the basis for a company culture, ultimately impacting the firm’s level of success in the long run.
On the contrary, the 12.1% of law firms with reports of positive cultures implement regular sharing of information and communication among all employees. An emphasis on positive relationships is key to building a healthy company culture as well as better client relationships. Successful firms instill a culture where everyone feels heard and valued, thus leading to higher retention rates.
At Talent Engines, we’ve found forming healthy relationships begins with the legal recruitment process. Recruiting the wrong candidate can have a major impact on firm culture. Traditional legal recruiting doesn’t account for the complexities of relationships in the workplace, however, relationships are ultimately the foundation of what comprises company culture. Instead of solely focusing on a candidate’s skillset, Talent Engines has reimagined the legal recruitment process by using AI to take personality and relationship dynamics into account when choosing the best legal candidate for a firm.
