We understand and solve your key issues
We build products which are designed to solve our customers key challenges. Effective performance management helps you remove the barriers to progressive improvement.
- Stressed and burnt-out staff
9 out of 10 lawyers have experienced stress or burnout at work, with more than a quarter suffering daily. And less than 25% feel supported when they are struggling with the pressure!
We all know law firms are busy and fee earners have heavy workloads along with meeting client demands and billing targets but many are no longer willing to just accept this.
- Lack of appreciation
The biggest contributors to lawyers’ stress are the high workload and the work done not being recognised.
If staff are putting in the effort to keep on top of their workloads, but receive no feedback, how do they know if they are doing a good job or if their work is being appreciated?
- Staff retention
45% of law firms have cited retaining talent as their biggest challenge with many firms increasing salaries by up to 50% to try and attract or retain talent.
But are unsustainable pay increases the answer to retaining talent? 20% of employees have said their desire to stay at their firm is linked to feelings of inclusion.
- SRA regulations
The Solicitors Regulation Authority is consulting on proposed changes to its rules that will reinforce its powers to deal with risks to clients and the public when these stem from a poor work culture in law firms.

FEATURES & BENEFITS
Embed a culture of regular meaningful conversations rather than an annual appraisal that suffers from recency bias.
Regular, guided conversations
Support partners and associates with performance, wellbeing and development conversations with our simple coaching conversation prompts.
Allow staff to understand their performance, raise any blockers and talk about their wellbeing and development in real-time, rather than just once a year.
Put fee earners in control of their own development by allowing them to set the check-in frequency and agenda.
Conversations are documented in one central place for fee earners, managers and HR to look back on.
Set individual, flexible goals that link to your firm's strategy and objectives.
Short-term collaborative goals
Easily set and track both performance and personal development goals individually or collaboratively as a team.
Goals are reviewed and set frequently, rather than once a year, meaning they are always relevant and not outdated.
Each goal is linked to one of the firm's objectives, meaning individuals understand how they are contributing to the firms' success.
Both personal development and performance goals can be set, allowing fee earners to prioritise, and track, their on-going progress.
