The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives has launched a new table tennis workplace wellbeing initiative for its 140 onsite staff.
The awarding body and professional association for lawyers and legal professionals introduced the scheme with the support of Table Tennis England. It plans to run regular competitions to increase employee involvement in the initiative.
The association runs a number of schemes to enhance the wellbeing of its staff, including lunchtime yogalates classes and a weekly after-work running club.
As of next week, it will also offer employees the opportunity to take part in a four-week programme of self defense sessions.
The association also takes part in the Workplace Challenge scheme, which involves a number of sporting activities and competitions. Rowing and golf are among the activities that staff have taken part in thus far, with a tennis challenge currently underway.
Mandie Lavin, chief executive of The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives, said: “We believe that offering our employees something fun and active to do during their breaks will benefit both the individual and the business down the line.
“We are passionate about staff wellbeing and support ideas that enhance the working environment for our employees.”
