The novel coronavirus pandemic is forcing businesses to change how they typically work and switch the very operation of the organisation. Many companies have gone from having everyone working at a central location to allowing employees to work at home in order to practice social distancing and stay safe during these trying times. While the change has been rough for some to adapt, it has allowed businesses to keep operating and allowed many to continue to work. These changes are expected to continue past the pandemic and that means there will be changes in how companies decide to work with a legal recruitment agency.

One of the most well-regarded analyst firms, Gartner, found in a study that over 40 per cent of the workforce will continue...

The novel coronavirus pandemic is causing all facets of business to change and be re-evaluated. Companies are being forced to adapt and huge changes on how businesses operate are already being seen, such as employees working from home rather than at a centralized office. This includes positions such as the Company Secretary, as they have to adapt and get used to working from home in order to practice social distancing and continue to be productive under a new schedule.

The good news for Company Secretaries is that it is a position that can be fulfilled remotely and isn’t dependent upon an office. Leading analyst firm Gartner predicts that 41 per cent of employees will continue working from home in the future, even...

The impact that the novel coronavirus pandemic has had on all jobs can’t be overstated: it is disrupting all work as we know it. This includes Company Secretary jobs as workers are having to learn how to work remotely rather than from the office. In order to comply with social distancing measures, these employees are working from home setups and creating home offices to stay just as productive.

On the bright side, the Company Secretary role is a job that can be done remotely without a lot of unexpected issues arising. The job was also included when Gartner, one of the world’s leading analyst firms, predicted that 41 per cent of workers are likely to work from home, at least part-time, in the future. Thankfully,...

There is no denying how the novel coronavirus has had a significant impact on Australia’s economy and employment rate. Unemployment has become a serious issue as in June alone the country went from 69,300 to 992,3000. That has caused the unemployment rate to hit 7.4 per cent, which is the highest number it has been since 1998.

Many sectors where these job losses occurred were already dealing with issues and the pandemic wound up being the tipping point. Industries most impacted by COVID-19 and lay-offs are retail, construction, postal services, transport, restaurants, and technical services. In other areas, the existing shortage in skills has been widened due to all of the issues COVID-19 has created for organisations. Businesses are...

The COVID-19 pandemic is making organisations look at how they operate and look into alternative ways to handle its business. While working at an office used to be standard operating procedure, that is no longer the case during the pandemic. Now an increasing number of employees are working from home and this is demonstrating that many jobs can be undertaken remotely. This allows employers and employees to do their part in social distancing while continuing to operate through this unprecedented period.

While the adjustment can be difficult for some that love office culture, companies are still able to keep going because of remote working. While these changes were made due to the pandemic, many will continue working...

Today, the job of in-house lawyer is no longer restricted to managing the legal risk associated with the business that they work within. They now work as vital business partners, participating in problems relating to corporate strategy, such as capital allocation, competitive strategy, new items, and advancing technologies. It is therefore little surprise that demand for in-house legal counsel has risen significantly within the local corporate landscape.

Frequently, companies seek out private legal counsel only when a need arises. It is a reactive endeavour that doesn’t address the million and one issue that could and often do pop up during routine staff and management interactions on a daily basis.
