The Great Resignation & Associate Shortage: Cause & Effect
Amy Sheridan was quoted in the article, "The Great Resignation & Associate Shortage: Cause & Effect," published by Attorney At Law Magazine.
The article discusses how the COVID-19 pandemic required employers, who would never have considered letting their employees work remotely, were forced to do so. In recent months, many companies and law firms have tried to force personnel back into the workplace and were faced with a surprisingly high number of employees who resigned, in response to what would previously have been an ultimatum.
Amy comments, “It seems COVID has caused attorneys — really all of us — to reevaluate priorities, both in our careers and personal lives. Students and laterals are looking for firms that allow them to be authentic and have a meaningful, rich career and practice. They are looking for a professional home, not a way station. Firms that have been relying on traditional incentives – money, prestige, promises for something better down the road – are having to adapt. And not all have kept up.”
