We’re excited to announce our latest podcast! This episode is even more special since our guest speaker is with HBR Consulting, one of Onit’s key alliance partners. Together with HBR, we’ve worked on 15 projects throughout our years together. This newest podcast features Lauren Chung, practice group leader with HBR’s Strategy and Operations Group.
Lauren begins by telling us a bit about the HBR Law Department Survey, the leading source of benchmarking data for U.S. and global law departments. The survey provides key metrics concerning legal spending, law department staffing, industry trends, diversity, and customized results. The comprehensive nature of the survey is what makes it unique. The survey is crucial in providing participants a detailed look at how they compare with their law department peers. In this way, departments can see areas in which they are strong or lacking. The survey is also a key performance management indicator to justify hiring, spend, and how effectively the department is managing resources. In fact, the survey has proven itself to be an effective tool in driving law departments’ performance management programs.
Lauren closes by explaining how to participate in the survey. The deadline for this year’s survey is mid-August, and those interested in participating may write to [email protected]. Survey results will be published sometimes this fall. The upcoming 2019 survey will reveal somewhat of a hidden surprise for participants – results will be displayed in a dynamic recorded format.
