Sector Spotlight Webinar: Time Out – Workplace Wellbeing for Professional Services

This webinar has now taken place and the recording can be viewed here

Law, accountancy, engineering, consultancy – across the board, professional services face unique challenges when it comes to supporting workplace wellbeing. Not least because when you bill by the hour, prioritising wellbeing is easier said than done.

Against the backdrop of soaring demand, the high-stakes, high-pressure environment is pushing employees across the sector to to the brink of burnout.

  • One survey from legal mental health charity, LawCare, found that a majority of UK lawyers had experienced mental illness in the 12 months leading up to early 2021. This included anxiety, depression, and low mood
  • The 2022 Mental Fitness survey by Chartered Accountants association ICAS indicated 82% feel an inappropriate amount of stress related to work
  • 67% of those who took part in a Professional Engineering survey said they’ve gone to work despite feeling emotionally or mentally unwell

With professional services struggling to fill jobs as competition for applicants soars, wellbeing isn’t just good for employees – it makes perfect business sense.

Whether you’re just getting started, or you’re moving your mental health and wellbeing plans to the next level, if you are part of the professional services – or simply want to learn transferrable tips. Join us on Tuesday 22nd March, from 9.30am – 10.30am for our free to attend Make A Difference webinar, in partnership with YuLife and in association with the Mindful Business Charter.

Join the session to learn:

  • What burnout looks like
  • How you can help combat stress and burnout – from encouraging small behavioural changes to looking at job demands and client expectations
  • Real life examples from employers in the professional services sector that show how a proactive approach to supporting wellbeing is making a difference

We make our webinars as interactive as possible, so it’s also a great opportunity to share ideas and tips with peers from across the sector.

  • Moira Slape, Chief People Officer, Travers Smith LLP
  • Richard Martin, Director and Mental Health Lead, byrne.dean & Mindful Business Charter
