ISSUE IN BRIEF

Briefing July19, M Workplace cover

In this year’s Briefing Legal IT landscapes research we asked a new question – what are the real drivers for strategies aiming to have more people working from home, or otherwise remotely? The biggest response got behind ‘creating different working environments for retention and attraction’. Second was the idea of these firms supporting their people in terms of their ‘wellness’; ahead of even the efficient attraction of needing to buy less carpet.

As well as allowing employees the agility to work happily from home, law firms are on a journey of investing in making going to work feel a little more like home … and then some. Even some of the latest office layout buzzwords tap right into this. Moving away from having your head down at fixed desks and into new open-plan neighbourhoods? The idea is to be part of a – super hardworking, for sure – but relatively comfortable and supportive community. Not only do some of these innovations sound like jolly pleasant creature comforts – happily, they’re also well designed to make for more productive, and ultimately more profitable, business conversations.
