Invaluable guidance on how to achieve Lawyer work-life-balance
There are three parts to attaining a lawyer work-life balance: first, understand the fundamental legislation affecting all of us at work; second, what employers can do to help their staff; and thirdly, what each of us can do to achieve better outcomes for ourselves.
While the first two steps are important, we must take responsibility for our own work-life balance – or perhaps that should be’ life-work balance’ – as which for you is ultimately most important?
The UK Health and Safety Executive published figures that on average, each person suffering stress, depression or anxiety took around 25.8 days off at year 2017/18); (http://www.hse.gov.uk/statistics/dayslost.htm
This could cost the country over 10 million working days lost per year; so, it is in everyone’s best interests to promote the messages about a lawyer work life balance within your firm.
Now, while note a complete reversal of stress, depression or anxiety, this course will outline the key legislation affecting you at work and give both employers and employees ideas and practical steps to move the culture to one of openness and support so that you can attain a better lawyer life – work balance.
