Steven Gursky Interviewed in Legal Management on Olshan’s Health and Wellness Initiative

Firm News

Legal Management, The Magazine of ALA, published an extensive interview with co-administrative partner Steven Gursky in an article focusing on law firms that have incorporated a health and wellness initiative for employees. Steve notes that the firm instituted its wellness program several years ago and overhauled numerous aspects of office life to support a healthier lifestyle.  When the firm moved locations, standing desks were provided to employees where such desks could be accommodated.  Gursky says, “There’s something about having a meeting standing around as you would at a bar table in a restaurant that’s more energetic than someone slumped in a chair. People have really taken to it.” The article also mentions the more favorable food options being offered and “A lot of our meetings, instead of a platter of sandwiches, are make-your-own-salad meetings.” Olshan has been a pioneer at the forefront of addressing wellness, beginning with a Wellness Committee and programs offered to lawyers and staff alike, including Yoga Laff, Juggle Fit, chair massages and a full blown two week 10K/ 5-A-Day Challenge, with current initiatives including monthly meditation, periodic health fairs, and wellness seminars.
