The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) has introduced a new mental health and wellbeing initiative award category into this year’s CILEx National Awards, in partnership with legal sector mental health charity LawCare.
The new award will recognise organisations that demonstrate improved staff wellbeing, retention and performance, as well as the embedding of mental health and wellbeing into organisational values and culture.
CILEx chief executive Linda Ford commented: “We are proud to support and represent a wealth of talented people and organisations and want to acknowledge those who are leading the way in taking measures to improve and maintain the mental health and wellbeing of their staff.”
Chief executive of LawCare, Elizabeth Rimmer said: “We are delighted that CILEx is the first legal professional body to launch a mental health and wellbeing award and we would like to encourage all firms who have developed initiatives in this area to nominate themselves. Sharing best practice in mental health and wellbeing in the legal sector helps create more mentally healthy workplaces, making the legal profession a happier and healthier place to work.”
The CILEx National Awards were launched last year to celebrate the talent, innovation and achievement of CILEx members, supporters and stakeholders. This year’s awards ceremony is taking place at Madame Tussauds in September and will be hosted by Claudia Winkelman.
