Supporting wellbeing in the workplace: guidance for best practice

Organisation: The Law Society


Working in the legal profession can be challenging – for many, stress feels like a normal and inevitable part of working life. This guidance talks through the scale of that problem, its effects, and the business case for making an effort to address mental health in legal workplaces.

Most importantly, it’s then filled with guidance, tips and suggestions that legal organisations can adopt to support employees’ mental health and wellbeing. Subjects include organisational culture, education and training, supporting colleagues and employees who are struggling, welbeing conversations and active listening. The document also includes real-life case studies, infographics and tools to help you reflect on how your organisation is doing.

It’s designed for employers of all sizes and at all stages of their wellbeing journey – and each recommendation indicates whether it’s suitable for small, medium and/or large firms.
