When your firm builds a Training & Learning Culture and continually invests in the development of talent, they no longer have to worry about retention and attraction. The best and brightest are naturally drawn to the firm. And, your star performers won’t be tempted to stray when you are continually investing in their futures.
Culture starts at the top of the firm. Without the commitment of the CEO and firm partners it is difficult, if not impossible, to build a Training and Learning culture. Partners must “talk the talk and walk the walk” to ensure the future success of the firm.
