Who are the Best Part-Time Remote Workers?

Who are the Best Part-Time Remote Workers? Smart Moms, of course, and here’s why!  

Has Covid-19 shifted your 2020 plans for your busy growing law firm?  Maybe you were planning on hiring multiple on-site full-time employees, now you’re thinking that a few part-time workers, who can work remotely, is the safer, low-risk option for your firm’s growth. 

If you need employees to work flexible schedules, remotely, with part-time hours, Smart Moms are the perfect match.  Here’s why:  

Smart Moms are multi-talented; they can fill many roles in the workplace.  They bring a wealth of skills to the virtual workplace. They are experienced paralegals, attorneys, Legal/ Virtual Assistants, IT, accountants, and bookkeepers AND they’ve worked in a variety of fields.  They bring their ENTIRE skill set to your workplace, including 5+ years of knowledge in their expertise area, leadership, management, strong communication and interpersonal skills.  

Smart Moms desire flexibility, and they offer it as well. They are seeking flexible opportunities that accommodate their lifestyle and other demands. They can work during non-traditional hours which can keep daytime business work moving. Employers need flexible workers that can ramp up or scale down depending on the work demands. It is a perfect match.

Smart Moms partner their innate collaboration skills with seasoned organizational and professional skills.  They are mothers and grandmothers, and they possess countless experiences pulling activities and families together within the home. They can “herd cats” and pivot on a moment’s notice.  This experience is directly transferrable to the work environment. Their style of leading is tied to compassion, intuition, and inspiration, which is much needed right now.

Smart Moms bring emotional intelligence to physical and virtual work environments.  They can control their emotions and help those around them even over Zoom (smile).  

Smart Moms are reliable and conscientious workers.  They enjoy contributing and doing quality work.  When given the right job that fits their lifestyle and passion, their quality of work and commitment is unbeatable.  

Our Smart Moms are educated, current, ambitious and on fire to make an impact.

The Natural Collaborator

The Natural Collaborator – A Smart Mom

High-functioning teams have different people in different roles.

One key role in a successful team is a collaborator.

Collaborators work jointly on an activity or project; they are NOT prima donnas. They bring strong interpersonal skills that support the team working together.

Collaborators ask for feedback, perspective and assistance; they don't create information silos. They withhold harsh dialogue. They volunteer to serve in roles and partner.

Smart Moms are natural collaborators. Their skillset has been developed by countless instances of pulling activities involving many people and rallying family together within the home. They lead home activities and influence home culture with compassion, intuition and inspiration.

Smart Moms partner their collaboration and organizational skills with professional skills.
