    March MALSP Meeting - Hiring Trends for 2021


    Join Robert Half Legal as we discuss new hiring trends for 2021 emerging out of the pandemic, and how companies are adapting their recruitment and retention strategies to the new normal. You’ll also learn about legal positions and skills now in demand as it relates to cybersecurity, e-discovery and privacy; what staffing models might work best for your firm, whether it’s remote, on-site or hybrid; and the latest trends in benefits and perks most offered among employers. We hope to help you gain a better understanding of today’s employment landscape as you navigate the most tumultuous business environment in years.

    We would also like you to submit questions to be answered during this panel (re: hiring, employment trends, eDiscovery as a career, etc.).
