Lauri Kavulich Authors "Law Firm Leadership in a Changing World: A More Human Approach" for Law.com
Strategy may be the driver of success, but culture is the driver of people. Lauri Kavulich was featured in the Legal Intelligencer encouraging law firm employers to take a fresh look at the issues causing employee turnover in an increasingly tight job market. Kavulich states that a more human approach is the key to building a good business, and profitable firms are recognizing that when people bring their whole selves to work, they are more engaged, thus more successful. As the managing partner of Clark Hill’s Philadelphia and Wilmington offices and a practicing labor and employment attorney, culture is at the forefront of Kavulich’s mission.
"Paying attention to the well-being of our employees is actually a good business practice that leads to greater productivity, especially since we rely on human capital, not machines, for our business. People are the drivers of our success, and profitable law firms understand this and are creating programs for wellness and engagement, our firm included. The law firms that resist such a move will be left behind."
