Host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Empire Group partner Alison Crowther to discuss the company’s recently released 2022 Legal Salary Guide, explore the latest developments in salaries in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, why such developments are so consequential, and what they mean against the backdrop of the supposed Great Resignation following the age of coronavirus.

Ms Crowther also reflects on the phenomenon of “quiet quitting” in the context of recruitment, why emerging trends reinforce what we know about the recruitment market, the role of legal recruiters moving forward, and what candidates can look forward to in the future.
