- 4:19 – “It’s no secret that the legal industry is known for burnout and you’ve got high ranking employees and lawyers who their job is to get results for clients and they’re often working long hours and it’s just really not know as a space, mental health and drug abuse is very rampant in the legal community and it’s something that the law journal has done numbers of studies on over the years and I think finally law firms are starting to wake up and realize wow these are people too and they’re not only your lawyers but your staff and we can’t burnout these people the way we are and while yes results matter so do the people making those results and getting those results to clients.”
- 9:09 – “We survey our employees, not just what can we do better, what can we do differently, how are you feeling, what’s going on in your life right now that relates to how you’re doing the work and I think surveys are so underrated these days but they’re so important and if anything it lets your employees know that you do care, you’re caring you’re valuing their opinion and I think that’s so important.”
- 27:15 – “Companies are starting to look at the recession that may be coming and they’re starting to pull back on things and so I’m looking more at how do I do the cheap little things without having to spend a tonne of money how do I let my employees know that they’re valued and we care about them.”
