Businesses globally are being severely impacted by Coronavirus, with Italy now entirely locked down, rising cases being reported and many companies actioning work from home policies to minimise the potential business impact.
Remote working is easier for some firms and companies than it is for others. Below are a few of LexisNexis' thought leadership pieces around the business challenges around flexi-teams.
Is flexible working the answer to stress in the legal profession?
“Some love the corporate environment: the after-work beers, the client dinners, the sense of belonging. “I hated that,” says Jack Celand, who trained at a top 10 UK law firm. “I couldn’t wait to get home after work. My body felt ruined from all the stress and strong coffee.”
Others agree. “There’s talk of burnout but people stick with it because it’s a long process getting the job,” says 28-year-old lawyer Olivia Smith.
