No matter the improved fortunes of companies and law firms this past year, pruning, streamlining and all around tough love continue to mark the management style of modern day employers. Security is nonexistent, gratitude for prior good deed are irrelevant, and financial pressures of employees summarily sacked figure less and less into today’s business equations.
Where are we going from here? Such gloomy thoughts are best overcome by acts of kindness. This is my New Year’s resolution, I’m keeping a diary and plan to report come Christmas time next year.
