Given the circumstances we find ourselves in, there is much discussion about what the future of work looks like for lawyers (and broader business communities).
Before Covid-19, there were already a range of forces at play that were moving us towards different ways of working such as technology; globalisation; workforce activism; and customer requirements for efficiency and productivity. At Herbert Smith Freehills, I was fortunate to be involved in some horizon scanning to look at how these forces might affect our business.
Covid-19 has acted as a slingshot. We have gone from "retailing" to "e-tailing", from ponderous, governance-heavy decision-making to more agile and innovative leadership. From working in the office to working at home, at holiday homes; with relatives and parents and so forth.
Many are wondering how much (and how quickly) people will snap back to the old ways of doing things when the current crisis abates. My hope is that we are able to harvest the best of the Covid slingshot and use it to build upon the pre-Covid forces that were already pushing us towards different ways of working.
I have the following observations – noting that I’m still learning as we go, so these are my best hunches rather than guarantees of the future.
The lessons from the Covid experience, especially the slingshot effect, could help as many across the legal sector step into this uncertain future. Of course, no one knows exactly what is going to happen – but I hope these observations are at least food for thought, even if they do not eventuate in their entirety.
