As a Responsible Business, we support our people in developing resilience and managing their wellbeing. We believe these are fundamental blocks in building a sustainable business and providing excellent service to all our clients.
We are committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best team to deliver the very highest level of service to our clients. As part of this commitment, we invest in our people's wellbeing so that they can perform at their full potential. This means caring for their physical and mental health.
We have made it a strategic objective to support our people in developing their resilience. One way in which we are doing this is through our Employee Assistance Programme, which provides individual support from trained counsellors as well as fast access to a range of services, including life management advice. Following successful trials in a number locations, our Employee Assistance Programme is now being rolled out to all of our offices worldwide. We have engaged a team of almost 50 people across the London office as Mental Health First Aiders, who act as an initial point of contact for advice about sources of support for anyone with a mental health concern.
We realise that working in a law firm can be a pressurized and demanding environment. Our wellbeing agenda aims to ensure our people are able to recognise and appreciate the importance of maintaining good mental health and in building their resilience and ability to operate healthily and successfully. Promoting a healthy lifestyle is another focus. We support our people in making healthier choices and encourage them to view exercise as social activity.
