Listen up law firms because some of your talent pool competition are offering benefits
to make their employees happy when it comes to family! We all know that working parents struggle when they return to work after having children and for a lawyer, life can be exponentially harder at times. Many firms are expanding benefits to ease stress on parents and attract top talent with parent leave programs and flexible billing requirements for new parents, which is a big step forward to being more family-friendly. However, life happens and sometimes lawyers need to stay on the job - finishing a late night brief or prepping over the weekend for an early morning of litigation. Firms need to lean in further and provide working parents childcare benefits that include subsidized at-home child care that's there when they need it most.
