Law firms often eschew scheduling flexibility because their income is based on billable hours. But the loss of a few hours isn’t as expensive as recruiting new lawyers.
That’s why law firm Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham introduced its Balanced Hours program, allowing its busy lawyers—from entry-level to partners—to telework and flex their schedules. The program helped propel the firm to No. 1 among women lawyers in a Harvard Law School Women’s Law Association survey.
“A lot of times people find themselves having to make a decision to leave or stay,” says Roslyn Pitts, Balanced Hours coordinator. Now, they can telework, compress their hours or flex their starting and ending times.
Those who reduce their hours also get reduced benefits. They collaborate with other lawyers to ensure each case is fully staffed.
