To what degree do you keep your finger on the pulse of hiring for your ventures? 

Internally, I am directly involved with hiring at the C-Suite and Senior Management level, and trust that those individuals will be smart, savvy and resourceful in filling other positions at the Firm. I also keep up on the latest issues that impact hiring—whether it’s having a handle on the millennial mindset or being cognizant of diversity issues. Externally, it’s important to know what’s trending in the industries we service. For example, is an industry going more tech-heavy? Or, outsourcing more? It’s good to have a 360 degree vantage point on hiring trends when you run a law firm.
