The Extra Mile - The Official Charity Miles Podcast

Jul 21, 2020

Katherine Adamenko is the Manager of Well-being at Ropes & Gray LLP, one of the best law firms in the world.

I used to work for a couple of law firms just like Ropes & Gray, and I can't recall anyone being concerned with wellness back then.

But times surely have changed.

When we were getting ready to launch our new Employee Empowerment program for companies to sponsor their employees, I cold-emailed a bunch of law firms to see who would be interested.

Katherine was the first to get back to me, and was very helpful as an early adopter, and in providing feedback for us to make the program better.

Since then, we've had many amazing companies reach out to join our Employee Empower program, including Salesforce, Allbirds, Workday, Gilead, Truist and more.

In just a few short months, this program has already helped raise over $2 million in corporate commitments for great charities.

Katherine's help was crucial in helping us get the platform off the ground.

Which is why I wanted to talk with Katherine to share her perspective on why well-being matters in the workplace-- now more than ever-- and how you can implement some easy wellness principles into your own workplace too.

Huge thanks to Katherine for sharing so much with us.  And a big thanks to Ropes & Gray for all of their support!
