Steno Employees Retreat to Los Angeles for Company Culture Building and Collaboration

Live Coverage of the 2022 Steno Staff Retreat

Since Steno offers full-time and part-time remote jobs across the United States, it can be challenging to coordinate an in-person meet up for our fully-remote, nationwide team. Luckily, we have a solution: the 2022 Steno staff retreat!

From April 29-May 1, Steno has invited our legal tech experts to come together in Los Angeles, our company’s birthplace and headquarters, to experience the local sights and food and get to know each other.

This company retreat is another Steno work perk that ensures our core values extend to our staff and our clients. We are committed to treating our remote team with the same hospitality they provide each day, while celebrating their countless efforts to make Steno services as innovative and highly reliable as possible.

The court reporting you need. The service you deserve.

When running a law firm, you have a lot on your mind: your cases, your clients, your cash flow. You need to meet your deadlines, work up your cases, and generate new business. So the last thing on your mind should be worrying about the details of depositions. Don’t let financing or technical hurdles stand in your way.
