Some Issues with Devising Personal Works-Pay Solutions for Employees

Role Money Plays in Employee Retention

Some issues, though common, are rarely simple, and employee retention is one of those. I have heard quotes like “an employee doesn’t leave a company, but leaves his/her boss,” and while in some cases such an assertion may be true, in most cases it is not. This article focuses on correlations between employee loyalty, employee retention, and the role that money (compensation) plays in attaining company objectives. + read more

Career Planning for your Multigenerational Workforce

Career Planning for your Multigenerational Workforce Workplaces throughout the country today are made up of four distinct generations – the Veterans (1922 – 1946), Boomers (1946 – 1963), Generation X (1963 – 1980), and Generation Y (1980 – 2000).

Interviewing a Law Firm: Distinctions that Make the Difference I recently asked a managing partner (who is actively in the market for lateral partners) how his firm distinguishes itself from its competitors. The response I got was, "We've got a great firm and we make a ton of money." I have to give him points for being superlative, if not terribly specific. He wasn't being flip; it was clear that he believes that these are the two reasons for partners to join his practice.

The truth is many firms aren't great at articulating what makes them different from their competitors. + read more
