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.” The program is also returning this year - "Start a Healthy Routine in 2014."
In the previous five 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.
