Rajah & Tann joins WorkWell Leaders to Champion Workplace Mental Health

Rajah & Tann announced today that it has joined WorkWell Leaders as a founding member.

WorkWell Leaders is a non-profit organisation whose mission is to build mentally healthy workplaces across Singapore through a network of CEOs and leaders who have agreed to be advocates of employee mental wellbeing as a strategic and urgent priority.

Rajah & Tann joins 18 other MNCs and local companies as founding members committed to building a more resilient workforce from the top level of corporate leadership instead of treating it as merely a HR function.

Patrick Ang, Managing Partner of Rajah & Tann said: “We are privileged to be part of an organisation where we can have meaningful dialogues with other corporate leaders on how to address mental health issues at the workplace.

“Many firms in our industry have started to prioritise initiatives that address stress, loss of motivation and burnout. On behalf of my leadership team at Rajah & Tann, we pledge to pay close attention to the mental well-being of our colleagues by creating a safe space where mental health issues can be discussed freely and stress inducers can be addressed effectively.”

Over the years, Rajah & Tann has introduced numerous measures to promote work-life balance including introducing flexible working arrangements for staff who need time off to take care of their young children, equipping employees with iPads with remote access to all documents, and publishing regular newsletters and running internal campaigns to promote work-life harmony.

For its initiatives, Rajah & Tann has won numerous awards including being named the only law firm recognised in 2019 by Singapore’s Health Promotion Board for its workplace health promotion programmes, and receiving the 2018 Tripartite Alliance’s award for Work-Life Excellence.

Mr Ang added: “Our talents are our greatest asset. As such, we will continue to spare no effort in pursuing diverse ways to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of our staff and to help them feel motivated and inspired, especially during these difficult times.”
