It’s not surprising to hear that 48% of law firms can't get enough time away from business as usual to find ways to make their firm more efficient. As we begin the new year, now is the time to reassess how you are doing business and what you can do to increase efficiencies and enhance workplace culture.
It will be most useful to think about basic tasks that yourself and your colleagues complete each day that consume your time. For example, administration and paperwork. Here are 3 ways you can think innovatively to get ahead and grow your firm.
Equip your team with the right tools
Your team’s skills are essential to business performance, but using the right tools to help them complete their roles each day is a huge help. Choosing the right software will make their work easier and translates to a streamlined workflow.

Improve employee skills with training
There are a lot of skills you can help your employees develop to improve their productivity. From simple training to become faster at completing tasks, to more involved training to expand a role or cater to an area of interest. Training greatly benefits both employers and employees. Proper training also leads to greater efficiency and productivity.

Focus on the future
When looking to enhance efficiencies and grow a strong workplace culture, it is important to look forward. Where do you want to grow your firm? While it can be useful looking into the past to fix mistakes, looking forward gives you a purpose, drive and vision for what lies in store for your firm. Looking towards the future can motivate your colleagues. When it comes to looking forward, developing a culture of innovation is a great way to involve your colleagues and have a strong future focus.
When developing a culture of innovation, it is important to encourage curiosity and freedom amongst people who think differently. Basically, cognitive diversity + curiosity + freedom = innovation. Being innovative allows your organisation to survive and grow rapidly and successfully. Simply put, innovation is about staying relevant.
We are in a time of unprecedented change. As a result, what may have helped an organisation be successful in the past, could potentially be the cause of their failure in the future. Companies need to adapt and evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of their clients.
