Counselling comes in-house at Hogan Lovells
21st February 2014
As UK law firms look to improve the state of their mental health support, Hogan Lovells has brought its counselling service in-house in order to make the service more accessible to its staff. With the move, staff at Hogan Lovells will now have full access to a counsellor two days a week.
By bringing the counselling legal jobs in-house, Hogan Lovells hopes that its staff will now feel more supported, with the firm’s London managing partner, Susan Bright, stating in this article, “The health and well-being of our people is a key priority for us and we are always reviewing what more we can provide”.
In addition to an in-house counselling service, Hogan Lovells have also provided its lawyers with a gym, GP service, physiotherapist, employee assistance programme and have held a well-being awareness week to promote the good health of all their employees.
The counselling service has been made readily available to staff on a completely confidential self-referral basis two day a week.
