We all know students are vying for jobs, but employers are just as competitive with each other to recruit top talent.  The needs and wants of this generation are vastly different than the typical recruit 5-10 years ago.  Research shows flexibility is a key consideration when students and lawyers are choosing their firms (and when they are deciding to leave).  If you don’t have a flex policy, you are missing an easy, effective, and inexpensive way to recruit great lawyers.   If you do have a flex policy, how is it being messaged and translated during the recruitment process (if at all)?  For CSO’s, how do you counsel students on navigating flexibility without stigma from a potential employer?  Hear from both perspectives of the recruitment process and learn how to use flexibility to recruit and retain your next generation of superstars!
