William Fry awarded The KeepWell Mark

31 October 2018
William Fry has been awarded Ibec's workplace wellness accreditation, The KeepWell Mark™. This is as part of a commitment by the firm to provide the newest and highest standards of workplace wellness, health and safety to its employees.

Since its launch in September 2017, the KeepWell community has grown substantially, with up to 70 companies enrolled in the initiative. William Fry is the first law firm to achieve this accreditation.

The KeepWell Mark™ is an evidence-based accreditation and award that recognises Irish employers for investing in workplace health and wellbeing. Its aim is to help businesses benchmark workplace wellbeing activity through a set of systematic and methodical steps. The framework includes a self-assessment, an onsite assessment from an Ibec approved external assessor and culminates with a report that outlines areas for improvement - allowing your business to chart its way to success.

The accreditation takes a holistic approach, focusing on eight key areas and how they impact our business. These eight areas of improvement are leadership, absence management, smoke free, physical activity, health and safety, mental health, healthy eating and intoxicants.

Speaking on The KeepWell Mark™ process, Managing Partner Bryan Bourke said: "We have made a strong commitment in recent years to improving our workplace wellbeing practices across all levels of the firm and we are delighted that this has been recognised with The KeepWell Mark™ accreditation. We look forward to building on the success of our workplace wellbeing programme."
