Jo Forbes
Health, Safety & Wellbeing Strategy Manager
Osborne Clarke

With a background as a health and safety solicitor, Jo has advised some of the biggest FTSE 100 companies on compliance with health and safety law including how to manage work-related mental health risks and introduce impactful wellbeing programmes. Now working in-house at Osborne Clarke, Jo has introduced a data driven approach to the firm's management of mental health risks in the form of a wellbeing strategy which identifies the key risk areas for poor wellbeing within work design/culture, prioritises actions, contains clear metrics for success and is reported on to the Board via quantitative and qualitative data. Through this formalised approach to wellbeing governance, Jo is passionate about achieving tangible, positive change at root cause (cultural) level for their people, with budget, time and resource focussed on the areas which matter to them most.
