B:CIVIC founding member Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell (WTO) recently won the Denver Business Journal’s inaugural Workplace Wellness Award in the extra-large category. The award recognizes WTO’s commitment to the help employees take care of themselves through yoga at work, and qualified expenses for a new bike, fitness classes, ski pass and most anything that helps employees take care of themselves. WTO also provides resources to support the mental, emotional, and financial wellness of employees and their families. Shown here is Connie Proulx, Executive Director, Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell Foundation holding the award, which is aptly topped with an apple.
And why is this relevant to CSR? Cone Communications recently completed their national 2017 CSR trends study and found that almost 95 % of consumers believe that “being a good employer” is key among the factors marking responsible business practice. Certainly, supporting wellness for the whole employee is part of that.
WTO was also named the #3 Best Place to Work in Denver by the Denver Business Journal in the extra-large company category, sustaining its 3-year trend to be among the top three and among the top-ranked law firm across all size categories. The Denver Business Journal and Quantum Workplace conducted the survey. In selecting WTO, the DBJ highlights numerous benefits of working at the firm, particularly a culture that encourages and values teamwork, collegiality, appreciation, and respect.
And WTO takes those values of caring and respect for each other out into the community through the twelve years of work of the WTO Foundation. the WTO foundation facilitates the efforts of WTO lawyers, staff, family, and friends who give time and donations to a wide-range of community service efforts. In fact, WTO cites more than 40 nonprofits benefiting from the support of the firm, its employees, and the foundation.
