How to Prepare for the New Normal: Things Law Firms Should Start Considering Now

            Whether you see the economic and workforce-impacting trends associated with the Coronavirus pandemic forming a “V”, a “U” or even a “W”, virtually everyone believes that there will be a clear recovery at some point in our future. How should employers prepare for the other side of this crisis?  What will the world of work look like in “the new normal”?

            With the maxim “failing to prepare is preparing to fail” at top of mind, we know that even as we continue to dedicate tactical effort to address today’s business exigencies, we must simultaneously devote strategic thought to the future changes needed to ensure an optimized recovery plan.

In this session, we will cover:

  • Recruiting:  How will recruiting in a 20% (or greater) unemployment market differ from doing so in a 3.5% unemployment market?
  • Workforce Modeling and Performance Metrics:  Flexibility is key
  • Workforce Management:  If “WFH” (work from home) is here to stay, what technology changes are implicated
  • Succession Planning and the new definition of “essential worker”
  • Employee Self-Service:  An urgent need for alumni portal(s)
  • Data Privacy and Governance: When information we shouldn’t collect suddenly becomes information we MUST collect

This session will be presented by Bob Greene a Senior HR Industry Analyst at Ascentis.  Bob's 40 years in the human capital management industry have been spent in practitioner, consultant and vendor/partner roles.  As a practitioner, he managed payroll for a 5,000-person bank in New Jersey. As a consultant, he spent 8 years advising customers in HRMS, and payroll benefits system design as well as acquisition strategies.  Bob also built a strategic HCM advisory practice for Xcelitor (later acquired by Deloitte Consulting).

As vendor/partner, he has had prominent roles in sales support, marketing and product management at several companies and currently Ascentis.  Bob has been a Contributing Editor for IHRIM's Wokforce Solutions Review journal, for the past eight years, and for 2020 will be Co-Managing Editor.  His experience also includes two years as Adjunct Lecturer in HRIS at Benedectine University in Lisle, Illinois. In addition to his 40 years of experience, Bob also holds a BA in English from Rutgers University.
