Stinson Well-Being Focus Highlighted in In Re KCMBA Podcast
Managing Partner Allison Murdock and Director of Well-Being Krista Larson spoke on a panel with other industry leaders in In Re KCMBA's recent episode that addresses lawyer well-being. Highlighting the firm's well-being resources and the importance of taking a holistic approach to well-being, Murdock and Larson discussed the many resources that the firm has implemented to support well-being, such as the firm's Connectors and Champions resource, a network of Stinson attorneys and staff who are able and willing to speak with a colleague about their personal experiences with mental health and substance misuse challenges in a one-on-one setting.
In the podcast, Murdock explained that in order to successfully recruit and retain the next generation of lawyers, it is crucial to focus on well-being, work-life balance and soft skills in addition to professional development.
