CLEAA BRISBANE Aug 7: ‘Innovating Talent Management in Law Firms – What’s new, What’s different and What’s gone?’

Innovating Talent Management in Law Firms - Terri Mottershead

Are your talent management initiatives keeping pace with legal industry changes?

This is the critical question for all TM professionals right now. We know much has changed – difference workforces, workplaces, workspaces – so, how are we identifying, meeting and supporting these changes?

In this lively lunchtime session, Terri will draw on her local and international experience, and encourage you to share, as she identifies and discusses emerging best practices in innovating talent management in law firms including the role of talent management as a change agent; the importance of empirically based decision-making; millennial leadership skill development; recruitment versus returnships; retention; new approaches to performance management, compensation and rewards; career development (mentoring and coaching versus sponsorship); employee engagement; and baby boomer succession planning.

The QLD Local Chapter of the Continuing Legal Education Association of Australasia (CLEAA) are pleased to invite you to a lunchtime presentation by the current President of CLEAA, Terri Mottershead.
