We understand that engaging and keeping talent in your firm is essential to offer consistent service and deliver on growth. Talented employees are frequently targeted by competitors, creating a war on talent and a costly training burden, as well as an impact on day to day operations and overall brand reputation. That’s why our talent and performance management software, helps you promote company culture and vision as well as assessment driven development, ensuring you’re able to manage all ongoing development, training needs and completed courses across your whole practice from one central data source. You’ll be able to provide your employees with long-term goals, company aligned objectives and clear career paths; which will better engage them by giving them a clear focus and integration with the future of your firm, building their loyalty. Map talent, succession plans and those at risk of attrition to proactively manage retention every day.
It’s important that you remain compliant with the Solicitor’s Regulation Authority and managing your people data with an efficient and effective data management system can ensure you do this in the best way possible. You’ll have the ability to create and publish custom dashboards to track performance and use the data to make smarter business decisions. Streamline your processes with accurate and quick data and reporting that you can easily extract, analyse and share, ensuring you provide your diversity statistics and gender pay gap reporting to the SRA quickly and accurately; giving you time back to focus on your employees.
Proper onboarding is essential for engaging your new hires, ensuring their future value to you and that you don’t lose them to a competitor. This is especially the case with having a vast range of roles, including graduate placements and internships. Our onboarding software can give you a competitive edge, using a personal touch to keep your new hires engaged until they start with the firm. It allows you to communicate directly with them and gives you the ability to brand and personalise their welcome and first experiences with your firm, ensuring that they feel part of your workplace right from their first interaction with you.
