With Wellness at the Top of Mind, Law Firms Expand Support Resources
Attorney William Shepherd, who chairs the firm's Well-Being Committee, spoke to The American Lawyer about the wellness initiatives Holland & Knight offers to support attorneys and their families. Mr. Shepherd mentioned how Holland & Knight was an "early adopter" of these programs and how the current focus is supporting family members struggling with issues such as addiction, mental health and grief. The firm also offers meditation sessions, mindfulness programs, virtual marathons and a human resources analyst to assist with programming.
"We are trying to take it beyond just the lawyer down the hall. Now it's a focus on how can we make sure your family and loved ones can get these kinds of resources," Mr. Shepherd said
