This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. An estimated 264 million people worldwide suffer from depression — a reality that impacts performance in the workplace. Robert Walker, president of Kirton McConkie, is here to discuss what his firm and others are doing to address this issue.


Kirton McConkie is one of Utah’s largest law firms, and as such, we have a responsibility to offer our employees ways to maintain their physical, spiritual, intellectual and emotional well-being. We’re passionate about helping our employees because we know that dealing with life’s challenges and fostering a welcoming, satisfying workplace culture is vital. Our commitment to well-being allows our team to more effectively represent Utahns, their businesses and their families.

We all need a little help sometimes. That’s why I’m excited that the Salt Lake Chamber and Utah State Bar teamed up to develop the Living Well in Law guide, specifically designed for professionals in the legal industry. It will help build engagement, resilience and well-being in their own lives. The guide provides firms with helpful strategies and resources to address the well-being of their employees and remove counterproductive stigmas. Find out more by contacting the Salt Lake Chamber.


The new resource guides we’ve developed provide industry-specific data, best practices and actionable steps for businesses that want to help their employees. So visit the Salt Lake Chamber’s website for more, and remember, we are here to help others. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
