The Boutique Lawyer Show: Creating supportive workplaces (particularly for working parents)

In this episode of The Boutique Lawyer Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by August & Claire Lawyers principal Justine Aubin to discuss why providing optimal support for one’s staff is of the utmost importance and what she has learnt about this critical need, how the pandemic age has influenced her approach to showing support as a business leader, and how to put in place healthy and supportive frameworks in one’s firm to better support the familial and personal needs of one’s staff.

Ms Aubin details her own experiences of providing such support to her staff (a number of whom have young families), the forces driving her to facilitate such an accommodating workplace and culture, fostering work-life integration, whether sees an increase in such approaches across the profession, how the approach influences the many hats that boutique law firm owners have to wear, and what will constitute best practice for firm leaders as working life continues to evolve across the professional services marketplace.
