Does the public image your firm portrays match the reality of working there?
Every week, we speak with lawyers and legal professionals who are experiencing challenges:
- Burn-out and well-being
- Work overload and a toxic culture
- A lack of purpose, meaning and belonging.
Yet the PR tells a different tale.
We desperately want to change this. And how do we do this?
At LexSolutions, we have partnered with the Maturity Institute to evaluate the reality of the legal sector.
Realise the potential of your human capital
The Maturity Institute’s work is the only robust, independent and pressure-tested methodology that holistically analyses organisational culture and investment in human capital.
“Maturity” is defined as the extent to which organisations realise the potential of their human capital, delivering meaningful purpose and value that benefits everyone.
In short, its mission is to creates the best outcomes for people, planet and law firms themselves.
We want to know your confidential views
We have already been working with a number of law firms and legal teams to assess their maturity.
Now, we give power to you, the people in law firms, to say what you really think and show each other the way forward. This data has to be the starting point to make it better.
We are opening up the DNA Diagnostic to everyone in the law firm industry to be able to confidentially feed in and express their views around ESG, DEI, culture and how their firm values its people. It only takes 10 minutes.
What do you get if you fill in the DNA Diagnostic?
- An immediate report back on the ‘maturity’ of your organisation across multiple factors
- If you spread the word, the start of interesting conversation with others who have done the survey
- The ability to help shape the legal profession for the better.
It’s our mission to analyse as far across the legal industry as we can. We want to get enough data and insights to do meaningful work on this at the root of the issues.
This is an entirely confidential exercise anyone can take part in. And if you feel too worried to do it with even that assurance, you have to question why? Why have we built a culture in legal that gives you anxiety about expressing your honest views so we can work together to make it better?
We can only make it better when we know the reality of the people working in it.
And that’s all of you.
