Stinson Leonard Street Named a Finalist for Denver's Healthiest Employers
Stinson Leonard Street was recently nominated as one of the 2015 Healthiest Employers by the Denver Business Journal. Through the annual list, the publication seeks to find the Denver-area employers who are truly focused on their workers' wellness. Stinson Leonard Street was one of only three law firms to make the list.
Companies were nominated by readers and then completed a survey on the health and wellness programs and initiatives offered to employees. The Business Journal partnered with Healthiest Employer LLC to perform the selection process.
Since 2007, the wellness programs at Stinson Leonard Street have promoted employee health and wellbeing through a variety of initiatives that are offered throughout the year . Through education, health screenings and personal health assessments the wellness programs help employees identify health risks and learn how to live a healthier lifestyle.
Programs and services offered to employees include, but are not limited to:
Access to an onsite or nearby fitness center
- Health and wellbeing challenges
- Health enhancement opportunities
- Educational lunch n’ learn seminars
- One-on-one coaching programs
“Our employees are encouraged to be active and to prioritize their wellbeing. A healthy body is as important as a healthy mind,” said Ernie Panasci, the managing partner of the Denver office. “That commitment has paid off. In the office we have an accomplished pole vaulter, a competitive tennis player and even an Iron Man triathlete.”
In 2014, Stinson Leonard Street implemented a wellness portal through the firm’s Intranet. This private portal allows employees from anywhere at any time to be engaged in the wellness program and continue to make progress towards their goals.
The firm’s wellness program strives to be as inclusive as possible for all employees of the firm. On site events like flu shot clinics and biometric health screenings are open to employees who aren’t members of the firm’s medical plan.
