A key priority for Matheson is the mental health and wellbeing of our employees.
Mindful Business Charter
In May 2020, we became signatories to the Mindful Business Charter (MBC), a set of best practice, behavioural principles to tackle and reduce avoidable stress in the workplace. Since then, we have built a committee of members from across the firm, including senior partners and business services leaders, who work together to actively promote the key principles of the MBC:
- Openness and respect;
- Smart meetings and communications;
- Respecting rest periods; and
- Mindful delegation.
Our 'Matheson Mindful Day', which is something we introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic, provides employees with an opportunity to switch off working for a day to recharge. Our colleagues are encouraged to reschedule non-urgent work and to use the time instead to completely unwind.
