Impact statement
This project will save us $8,686 , allowing us to allocate those dollars to outreach to both potential artist clients around our state and also to volunteer attorneys (who are critical to the process because we handle only a few matters in-house).

Project Details

What We Need
  • A documented process outlining how to administer a top-down, peer-to-peer, or a full 360 employee review process
  • A communication plan to share the process with others in the Organization to help them understand the approach and desired outcomes
  • Recommendations on tools that can be used to collect feedback (anonymous or identified) and organize quantitative and qualitative results
  • Best practices for rolling out the performance reviews, and coaching advice for managers and individual contributors
What We Have In Place
  • We need help with a process for employee reviews. We have never done official reviews, but know how important it is to have a process to give feedback to employees.
How This Will Help

Having an employee review process will provide a format for employees to better understand expectations and then feedback about whether the expectations were met. It will help GLA meet its goals of getting more efficient with the staff, which will allow us to serve more clients.

About The Org

Our Mission

To further creativity by protecting and advising Georgia's artists and inventors.

What We Do

Through our staff attorneys and network of more than 700 volunteer attorneys, Georgia Lawyers for the Arts provides pro bono legal assistance to artists from all disciplines and arts organizations with an annual budget of less than $1 million. In 2017 alone, GLA provided more than a $2,000,000 (over 3,200 hours) in pro bono legal services to Georgia's arts community.

GLA provides three types of services to artists: (1) Pro Bono Attorneys: for artists and arts organizations with a discrete legal issue, GLA in-house attorney will either handle the matter or the organization will match the artist-client with a pro bono attorney; (2) Legal Clinics: on a monthly basis, GLA volunteer attorneys provide on-the-spot legal advice during 30-minute counseling sessions; and (3) Legal Seminars: GLA attorneys present seminars on numerous legal and business-related topics. These topics include copyright and trademark law, corporate formation, and industry-specific topics targeting photographers, musicians, and those in the film industry. Through its legal hotline, pool of volunteer attorneys, and numerous educational workshops and seminars, GLA serves thousands of artists and arts organizations in Georgia, and act as a critical link between members of the legal and arts communities.
