As eDiscovery and litigation support professionals, training end users can become an important part of your job. Most of us don’t have teaching experience, but the better you are at training, the easier the rest of your job will be. A well-trained review team leads to a smooth production; a well-trained trial team leads to fewer midnight phone calls. In this snackable podcast series we talked to three lit support professionals with strong training skills. Holland & Knight has developed an admirable training program on Relativity for their reviewers – we spoke to Kristen Wiwczar about what she’s learned from teaching others. Jessica Carter of Driven helps Driven’s corporate and law firm clients develop workflows and best practices on One, Relativity and Brainspace – she has insights on keeping users engaged and how law firm lit support staff can supplement vendor training. Ethan Hirsch of Ipro trains his customers on Trial Director and the Ipro suite of eDiscovery tools - he spoke about going onsite during the pre-trial crunch and what’s different about training for trial.

In this day and age, compensation alone, is no longer enough to attract and retain top talent. I’ve noticed this first hand in the eDiscovery market. I speak to ten plus candidates in a given day and I always ask the question, “What is most important to you in a new role?” Ten years ago, that answer was usually in the world of money, or benefits, but today, about 80% of individuals I speak to are answering that question with something related to culture. To be clear, this does not mean that organizations are able to pay under market, it simply means that they must build an offering beyond compensation in order to remain competitive and win top talent. The companies in the eDiscovery space that are most successful in attracting top talent are offering innovative cultures as their weapon against compensation warfare.

What about our tech teams' ability to build rapport and empathy with our user base? In this ILTA Radio session, some top IT leaders discuss teaching technical team members to acquire and use more soft skills in addition to their highly sought-after computer engineering skills.
