At a recent legal conference I attended, the keynote speaker--the general counsel of a major corporation--distinguished between the mindset of one who owns a home versus one who rents.
The homeowner invests, improves and financially gains through ownership, ultimately seeing a return on his or her investment. By contrast, the one who rents typically does the bare minimum with his or her lot, and in the end never will have an appreciable asset.
Support Training and Development Opportunities. Encourage your staff to attend conferences and continuing legal education seminars. When employees see managers are interested in their career growth, they become invested in the growth and development of the legal department and company. When employees feel valued, their morale and respect for their workplace become enhanced. As workplace satisfaction increases, workplace retention increases.
