Novant Health Legal Department Wins Award for Work Life Balance Initiatives

Novant_logoThe legal department at Novant Health, a North Carolina-based, not-for-profit healthcare system composed of physician medical groups and eight hospitals, recently won the first annual Corporate Counsel Work-Life Balance Award (bestowed by the labor law firm of Constangy, Brooks & Smith, LLC) for its work life balance initiatives.

Novant Health's innovations? The first initiative is the Flexible Work Arrangements program, which encourages all lawyers, whether full or part-time, to take time off during the day or to leave early to attend children’s school events, games or other important family activities.  The second initiative is the Approach to Work and Workload Allocation, which allocates work among the department’s lawyers and balances workloads between Novant’s legal staff and outside counsel.

Very sensible policies that surely keep the troops happy and loyal.
