“By participating in the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance’s Flexibility Benchmarking Survey, Ogletree Deakins was able to analyze existing policies and pinpoint where they could be improved. Using the Alliance’s recommendations from our customized report, we were able to provide our Board of Directors with concrete action steps for advancing our commitment to flexibility and diversity, including implementing specific changes to our reduced hours policy and by creating two new Reduced Hours Advisor positions.”
— Terry Egler & Kelly HughesShareholders and Reduced Hours Advisors, Ogletree Deakins
In response to member feedback, the Alliance launched this survey to track the progress of workplace flexibility, usage rates, and to collect more holisitic data as whole in U.S. law firms.
The report examines the types of flexibility and leave policies firms have implemented, how well they are utilized, how working flexibly affects promotion and leadership opportunities, and the types of support available for those who work flexibly.
