Attraction & Retention Consulting

If you want to not only attract the best talent in the market, but also improve employee engagement and, with it, increase productivity, reduce staff turnover, and decrease your recruitment costs, you need to create and maintain a powerful employer brand that is true to your values, culture and goals. 

We can help with that.  

Why Realm?

Our team collectively have decades of experience in helping lawyers move jobs, and so we're very in tune with what piques their interest in a potential opportunity, attracts them to (or puts them off) a law firm, and keeps them happy in their job.  

As ultra-specialists, we've long used that unique insight and our quality data – both from our database and the annual surveys we conduct – to advise law firms on their employer brand and their employee engagement, attraction, and retention strategies, to help them get ahead of the competition.  

Who is it for? 

Our Attraction & Retention Consulting Service is suitable for any firm based in the North West and Yorkshire - we know those areas inside out and can help you with thoroughly understanding the market.  

What are the benefits?

Better employee engagement levels  

Happy employees are more productive employees, which means they are more likely to hit targets and be profitable. 

Reduced staff turnover

Whilst recruitment is sometimes the answer to the problem, persistent recruitment is not a sustainable response to high staff turnover levels. Reducing staff turnover not only reduces recruitment spend but, it decreases the time and money lost owing to the commercial downtime associated with recruiting.  

Easier to recruit better people  

A strong and well-formulated employer brand that is appropriately marketed makes it easier to attract the best talent.  

How can we help?

Based on our area-specialist research and our IMA-driven approach, we'll be able to give you a thorough, written report on how your firm performs against your competitors in the following areas:  

  • Salary 

  • Annual Leave  

  • Flexibility and WFH  

  • Wellbeing  

  • Progression Opportunities  

  • Team compatibility (IMA)  

The process

  1. Schedule a call with our Client Care Lead and the specialist recruitment consultant to discuss the current package you offer and let us understand more about your approach. 
  2. Based on the information provided by you, we will produce a report with our findings on how your firm fares in the market. We will be straight to the point and tell you about your strengths, weaknesses and areas for improvement.  
  3. The second, final, conversation will be scheduled to give you the opportunity to discuss the report in more detail and ask us any questions you might have.

At Realm, we understand that the legal recruitment and jobs market has been significantly affected by COVID-19. Last year we undertook a survey of lawyers to better understand the changes that would lie ahead of the pandemic and how they would affect employee engagement, attraction and retention. 

Following the success of our 2020 survey, this summer we decided to repeat our research to see how the things have changed and to help our clients better understand what the future holds in the post-pandemic jobs market. 

We surveyed over 100 lawyers to find out how the last 18 months has impacted: 

  • the way they work,  

  • how they view their job and their employer 

  • their priorities.

Taking your employee engagement, attraction and retention strategy to the next level in a post Covid-19 world. 

Next month, we will be releasing the results of our research in full as we dig a little deeper into what our findings show and the likely implications for the legal recruitment sector.
