TRU Q4 2018 Newsletter

Q4 closed out an incredible year for TRU and our clients! Before we recap the wealth of original content created in the last three months, we wanted to share just a few statistics from 2018, specifically from the fourth quarter, that we believe you will find compelling.

TRU received more job orders in the fourth quarter than in any other quarter last year. December was the fifth highest ranking month at TRU for new job orders from clients. October ranked first with the highest amount of job order requests received all year. Our professional communities intensified their pursuit of net new talent at the end of last year, and we anticipate that surge continuing into Q1 2019.

Remote (or work-from-home) placements constituted 27% of placements made by TRU in 2018; this is up from only 3.6% in 2014. Conversely, relocation hires have dipped from 27% to only 7.3% of placements made from 2014 to 2018. This makes sense—more virtual staffing, less need for relocation. Clients in all sectors are adapting to the candidate-driven demand for remote opportunities, and for many employers, this trend means finding better talent at lower costs.

What may fascinate many legal tech professionals is that requests for contract staffers in cybersecurity, e-discovery, and privacy combined constitutes a whopping 44% of job orders we received in 2018. Employers and employees have become more equipped to embrace the benefits of contract augmentation in these nuanced disciplines, and TRU is committed to representing the best and brightest talent, many of whom yearn for the contract lifestyle!

2018 truly was a great year for growth, and we wish everyone a fruitful 2019 and beyond in the cyber, ESI, and privacy industries. Let the New Year begin!

Attention privacy pros! TRU founder and CEO Jared Coseglia will moderate an all-star panel (Jutta Williams, Twitter; Zoe Philippides, Anthem Inc.; Dennis Sanchez, HP) titled "Healthcare Technology and the Increasingly Important Role of Privacy Professionals” at IAPP's PSR Conference on October 22 at 3:45pm PT.

Thrust once again into the limelight by COVID-19, the intersection of healthcare concerns, data privacy, consumer rights, and in many instances, human rights have meaningfully captured social consciousness and, in turn, captured corporate consciousness. “Alexa, remind me to take my heart medicine at 3pm.” Led by cutting-edge industry thought leaders, this panel will cover the conversation surrounding product creation that leverages healthcare and HIPAA-protected data, and its intersection with our everyday lives. From smart-home technology to the role of social media in the COVID-19 response, we will discuss proactive efforts to monetize and build trust with customers, inspired by product creators who have enticed the public with apps and goods that involve the collection and processing of data related specifically to healthcare. Join us for a deep dive into the risks and rewards of gathering, using, and wielding this data, and the precedent being set for future privacy laws.

Law Firms May Be Facing an eDiscovery and Tech Personnel Crisis: eDiscovery Trends

If the Barbra Streisand song lyric “people who need people…are the luckiest people…in the world” is true, then personnel managers at law firms must be very lucky indeed. I’m sure they don’t feel that lucky, given the current eDiscovery and tech personnel crisis that many of them are beginning to face.
