White & Case looks to revamp flex plan

Law firm White & Case is planning to introduce carbon offsetting and mole screening as part of efforts to revamp its flexible benefits scheme.

If the plans are approved by the firm’s executive committee, its London-based employees, which number more than 600, will have access to a skin screening service provided by Screen 4 Life.

The service, which costs £50 per annum per employee, will assess any skin discolouration or growths. Photographs will also be taken of moles to track any future growth.

The firm is also considering plans to set up a carbon-offsetting scheme with the Woodland Trust. Employees will be able to calculate their carbon footprint and then deduce the number of trees that need to be grown to offset it and the amount of money required to pay for this. White & Case will match the cost.

Kate Griffiths-Lambeth, director of human resources at White & Case, said: “These are things that people who work here are interested in and we’re catering to that demand.”
