Hot Topics Roundtable

The GLA ALA Multi-Office Section Meeting took place on
May 18, 2017, at the offices of Jackson Lewis P.C. Seven
members attended the live presentation Downtown and three
members attended via WebEx. Wendy Sweet, CLM, facilitated
the meeting and started by reviewing section members' top
survey responses with the group (see chart). Thereafter the
group discussed some specific challenges relating to how to
manage time differences between offices, and how to manage
employees working offsite and the attorneys' expectations/
frustrations related to it. Some suggestions included using
surveys to determine 1) what is working well and should
continue, 2) what isn't working and should stop, 3) what
could work better with a slight change, and 4) what should
be started. One member offered that the "squeaky wheels"
should not be written off nor their opinion discounted because
they often voice what others think but won't say. An issue at
another firm involved how to engage secretaries who have
been there a long time and think they have hit the ceiling in
growth. Determining what they enjoy doing/excel at and asking
them to cross-train with another secretary who has expertise/
interests in different areas could help each person grow and

feel more valuable to the firm. Finally, a Manager's Checklist for
Employee Check-Ins from CRG emPerform was shared with
the group and stressed the importance of preparing for oneon-one meetings with employees, coming up with discussion
points and conversation starters, documenting key discussion
points and action items, and performing a self-evaluation
following the meeting.
