Why Law Firms Cannot Separate Employee Mental Health From The Health of Their Business
Large commercial law firms are not the first places that come to mind when people think about caring and compassionate employers.
Law can be a tough profession: long hours, tight deadlines, stressful situations, pressure to produce results for clients. And mental health remains a taboo, especially in a demanding and competitive environment where signs of ‘weakness’ are traditionally frowned upon. As a profession, we need to be bolder and more innovative in how we address mental wellbeing in the workplace.
