Krinick Comments on Work From Home Policies for LIBN

March 10, 2023

Evan Krinick shared his insight on hybrid work schedules in the Long Island Business News article, “With hybrid and remote work models, there is no ‘one size fits all.”

He noted:

“We’re doing a mandatory three days a week, but everyone – attorneys and staff – has to be here on Wednesdays.  On Wednesdays, the firm can hold firm-wide meetings and foster a “collaborative, collegial atmosphere that we think is important. In this structure, productivity has not diminished at all, and team members appreciate the savings on commuting time and expenses. Much is learned by being present… physically present, they take advantage of those times. Senior management focuses on providing mentoring, training and development to ensure that the less senior team members “are learning the skills they need to become leaders. Programs are set up for that very purpose to make sure younger attorneys are getting that attention.”

“Leadership works to ‘avoid proximity bias’ – that is, awarding special projects and the like to those who are in the office simply because they are present – to be fair to everyone, team members are reminded to keep current with available opportunities, and become proactive about the ones they are interested in so that they are considered.”
