A wellbeing programme = employee retention, increased productivity and financial benefits

Join us at the Law Society on Thursday 23 April for the Business of Wellbeing Summit. This Summit is aimed at mid to large sized firms who take professional wellbeing seriously.


While the benefits of implementing a wellbeing programme for employees may appear self-evident, organisations do not necessarily consider the benefits that wellbeing programmes can have on their business; employee retention, reduced absenteeism, increased productivity rates, and financial benefits.


This Summit is aimed at mid to large sized firms who take professional wellbeing seriously. They may have developed, are currently developing or are considering developing a wellbeing programme themselves.  The morning session will open with a brief outline of the Law Society of Ireland Professional Wellbeing Programme and a presentation on the rights, risks and obligations of wellbeing and mental health in the workplace. This will be followed by an interactive panel discussion on the business case for wellbeing including industry experts and the perspectives and experiences of other jurisdictions. Guidance for best practice in supporting wellbeing in the workplace will also be discussed.


The afternoon will be devoted to designing a professional wellbeing business charter. Delegates will be involved in the process of designing and agreeing upon a charter to meet their needs. This workshop session will be facilitated by a leading diversity and inclusion consultant who has extensive experience in designing professional charters. The Summit will conclude with an interactive reflective wellbeing session focused on personal support tools.
