The law firm of Adams and Reese has been selected among the finalists of the “Healthiest Employers” in Middle Tennessee, according to the Nashville Business Journal.
Adams and Reese will be recognized in the category of 5-99 employees, ranking companies based on number of employees in their local Nashville office.
Honorees will be featured in the Nashville Business Journal’s “Healthiest Employers” special section in the August 23rd edition, and honorees will also be recognized at an awards luncheon on August 22nd at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel.
Every year, Adams and Reese, across its offices nationwide, conducts a wellness, weight-loss challenge for its employees. In addition to discounted gym memberships and routine health care clinics, Adams and Reese has focused on improving the wellness of its employees through installing an annual weight loss program, beginning in 2008, and most recently named “Get Lean in 2013.”
In the previous six years, more than 500 employees have participated and combined to lose more than 5,000 total pounds. The challenge consists of a 10-week, weight-loss program designed to lose at least 10 pounds individually, and create a fun atmosphere for weight loss and physical activity, including a chance to win cash prizes.
In addition to Nashville, Adams and Reese has been recognized with “Healthiest Employers” distinction in several other cities, including Birmingham, Memphis and Tampa.
