Herbert Smith extends emergency childcare offering

Herbert Smith has extended its emergency childcare service to include school holiday cover.

The law firm initially launched its childcare service through provider My Family Care in early 2008 and added school holiday cover last month.

Michelle Bassett, benefits analyst at Herbert Smith, said: “The idea was for employees to access the service to have emergency childcare if something happened and they could not be at home with the child.

“With the summer coming up, we thought this would be an ideal time to extend the service.”

The changes were communicated through an email that went out to all 1,700 staff.
