Looking for business health cover for your law firm? Find out why health benefits are important for your law firm
Law firm benefits packages – why do you need one?
Benefits for lawyers are in no short supply. Competition between firms to recruit and retain dedicated employees has never been higher and post ‘the big resignation’ companies need to do all they can to recruit and retain the best employees. Employee perks can range across a wide variety of benefits from time off for volunteering, large bonuses to free ice-cream or fruit. However, health benefits as an employee benefit is often at the top of most employees’ wish lists.
For many people, law firms can be stressful places to work. There are many high-pressure situations that take place day to day, not to mention the increasingly competitive nature of the law industry. Long hours can make creating a healthy work-life balance feel impossible and stress can take a mental as well as physical toll on law firm employees and their family members. With such high pressure and long working hours, it’s important that mental health is taken care of. Busy lifestyles must be accommodated for, so access to private healthcare which is flexible and can often fit around people’s busy schedules is vital.
Offering health benefits helps to create healthier, more relaxed employees who will work more efficiently and better fulfil their potential. Creating a competitive health insurance package will also help to ensure employee recruitment and retention remains high.

Lawyers may not get health insurance included as standard in their benefits packages, but there are plenty of health benefits options designed to suit lawyers and solicitors.
In the competitive world of law, law firms are constantly aware of what their competitors are offering compared to their own employee benefits packages. Competitive benefits packages will normally include health insurance plans and health benefits. Ensuring that employees are fit and healthy and are motivated and performing well is a high priority for law firms. Clients need to see highly effective and productive lawyers and retention of clients is also a key concern for law firms.
What to Look for in Health Insurance plans for Law firms
Recruitment and retention of hard-working employees can be difficult, particularly when you are a smaller law firm or just setting up a new company. A competitive business health insurance plan is the perfect way to look after employees, earn loyalty, and help to create a working environment people want to return to, however budgets may be a concern for many firms. Flexibility and an emphasis on mental well-being are also important factors to consider for those in such high-pressure working environments.
