So when you are “working from home” (finger quotes in the air), your outside counsel may be as well. Who said working from home causes more stress?
“When Morgan Lewis chair Jami McKeon started as an associate at her firm 36 years ago, there were no alternative work arrangements. No flex time. No reduced hours. No working from home. “Everyone was in the office all the time,” she said. “When I was raising children, I would go home to put them to bed and come back to the office. Some days I would stay there all night. The books were in the library in the office, the typewriter was in the office, the Xerox was in the office.” But now, as law firms have adopted more progressive policies in a war for talent, things are changing….Morgan Lewis announced a new policy that will allow associates with at least two years experience in the firm’s U.S. and U.K. offices to work from home up to two days a week.”
