23 Leading Law Firms Demonstrate Commitment to Work Life Balance by Joining the Project for Attorney Retention

As many of our readers may know, the Project for Attorney Retention ("PAR") is a nonprofit initiative that undertakes research and develops resources to help law firms reduce attrition rates.

Last week, PAR announced that it was offering founding memberships to law firms, and that 23 firms had already signed up. In addition to supporting PARs on-going work, law firm members will receive special benefits such as a review of their part-time policies and a teleconference for their attorneys who work reduced hours about how to advance professionally. See further details on the Project for Attorney Retention website.

Work life balance is a key issue in attracting and retaining quality, engaged staff. Many firms are becoming more cognizant of this fact, and instituting a wide range of new policies and benefits to assist with this challenge.
