Hamilton Locke Managing Partner, Nick Humphrey, featured in Lawyers weekly on the state of mental health in the legal profession following COVID-19 and what firms and business leaders can do to improve this.
Nick noted the ongoing and negative impact of COVID-19 with lawyers reporting increased withdrawal and social isolation, loss of work structures and routines, mental fatigue, an absence of work/life boundaries making it hard to switch off from work, a lack of motivation, increased frustration and a sense of helplessness.
Nick highlighted the shifts in how firms combat mental health by actively promoting flexible work options, supporting remote working, training people to provide peer support as mental health champions and providing access to resources and tools to promote positive mental health and well-being.
At Hamilton Locke, we have built a people-centric business that maximises our people experience and focuses on mental health and well-being. We’ve fostered a unique strategy and vibrant culture, putting our people at the forefront of everything we do.
