Shoospeak HR podcast - Episode 18: Supporting employees experiencing domestic violence

Our Shoospeak HR podcast welcomes special guests Peter Morris (Partner in the Shoosmiths' family team) and Mahdiya Malik (HR and CSR Manager at Vaultex).

Shoosmiths colleague Andy Graham chats to special guests Peter Morris (Partner in the Shoosmiths family team) and Mahdiya Malik (HR and CSR Manager at Vaultex) about Vaultex's recent introduction of a domestic violence policy. The policy is in collaboration with Shoosmiths' family team and it allows for an arrangement for the workforce to have access to free legal advice when they find themselves in the horrible scenario of experiencing domestic violence. The podcast touches on:

  • What Vaultex wanted to achieve with the policy;
  • How the initiative came into being;
  • How the benefit was introduced to the workforce; and
  • How it has been received so far.
