A strategy for staffing and hiring is critical to law firm growth. The process can be daunting. However, having a plan in place will positively affect your practice’s profitability and team morale. A hiring strategy will cultivate growth, maximize profitability, and keep your team happy.
Selecting a great candidate is more than the experience and education you see on their resume. How do you know if the new candidate will work well with your existing team? Using tools like the DISC profile will help you align communication and workstyle preferences to the role, responsibilities, your expectations, and your team. Consider current hiring trends – what are your colleagues and competitors offering new employees? If you find a great candidate, you want your open position to be the role and law firm they’re seeking.

We recommend using the DISC Assessment in the hiring process to help align the role and responsibilities to the communication and work style preferences.
