Democratizing Access to Legal Services and Dissecting Disruptive Legal Tech Models, a Conversation with Employsure’s Michael Morris
On today’s episode of Beyond Billables, we conducted a case study of sorts. The goal was to review the practices of an innovative company who’ve have taken a large chunk of business out of the employment law marketplace and see what could be learned. Guiding us through this process was Michael Morris head of talent at Employsure. Michael told us a bit about his story and ultimately how he ended up at the company that is ‘disrupting workplace relations’ across New Zealand and Australia. He talked about hiring practices, values, models, growth, flexibility, what kind of people Employsure looks for and offered advice to future lawyers. This conversation isn’t to be missed.
