The JurisIQ Learning Center, an online training service provided by the law firm of McAfee & Taft, was recently named a winner of a national “Your Honor Award” presented by the Legal Marketing Association. The honor was announced during the association’s annual conference on April 13 in Austin, Texas. Nearly 1,400 legal marketing professionals attended the event, with only 35 law firms walking away with awards.
McAfee & Taft was one of three firms honored in the “Practice Development and Client-Based Programs” category. The Oklahoma-based firm placed second in the highly competitive category, which included two of the world’s largest law firms, one of which went on to win “Best of Show” honors.
“Each year, the LMA Your Honor Awards showcases the best in the legal marketing industry involving everything from creativity and execution to achievement and overall excellence,” said Betsi Roach, LMA’s executive director. “The Your Honor Awards brings together the innovative ideas from the LMA community and works to affirm our position as a thought-leader in the industry.”
The JurisIQ Learning Center is a comprehensive, online, on-demand digital learning library covering all facets of labor and employment law. Building on McAfee & Taft’s reputation for being the go-to legal resource for employers and HR professionals, JurisIQ features courses taught by McAfee & Taft attorneys providing targeted training for all types of employees – basic employment law training for the general workforce, expanded training for managers and supervisors, and detailed education and training for HR professionals, executives, and business owners.
During McAfee & Taft’s recent annual labor, employment and employee benefits seminars in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, employment attorney and JurisIQ founder Paul Ross announced the release of version 2.0 of the JurisIQ learning platform. This update includes a series of enhanced features and functionality specifically designed to give HR professionals even more control of their training systems, allowing for a more tailored approach and hands-on management of the training process.
“Many companies — even well-meaning employers — do an inadequate job of providing initial training and ongoing training for their entire workforce,” said Ross. “Most don’t provide employment law training of any kind, and even those that provide training do so on an infrequent basis, and usually on one or two topics.
“We developed JurisIQ to provide employers an affordable, cost-efficient and comprehensive solution to meet their workforce training and education needs, which not only assists in fostering compliant workplaces, but also helps prove their good-faith efforts to comply with employment laws in the event they need to defend against a lawsuit.”
JurisIQ distinguishes itself from other workplace training services in that it provides unlimited access to its entire library of courses available to an employer’s entire workforce for one annual subscription price. For more information, visit JurisIQ.tv.
