The spotlight on mental health and well-being in the legal profession has never been brighter. More law firms, legal departments, and law schools are establishing programs to do better, including signing the ABA's Well-being Pledge. Altruism isn't the only motivator for organizations taking better care of the health of their workforce. There's also a compelling economic rationale. The $9.1 billion lost to attrition by 400 top US law firms in a single year demonstrates hint that there's significant economic motivation to drive a culture shift. In this webinar, Renee Branson, an expert on well-being in high-performing organizations, and Tim Corcoran, a veteran presenter on law firm finance topics, will make the case for investing in well-being as they demonstrate impact it has on retention, innovation, performance, and incremental revenue and profit.

Learning Objectives:

  • Illustrate the key tenets of a well-being program, including the ABA Pledge

  • Demonstrate the economic rationale and business case for improving workforce wellbeing

  • Provide guidance on how to get started and how to measure success
