This program welcomes legal employer representatives and lawyers-in-transition to hear about creative methods being used by employers to identify and fill gaps in expertise and perform spillover work. We will discuss how to transition new and temporary employees into a fragmented workforce; the economic benefits to employers in recruiting back re-entry talent; ways to use flexible and reduced-hour scheduling and telecommuting to save money, minimize layoffs and maximize productivity; and how to manage talent effectively to minimize burnout, anxiety and low morale.
