The law firm of Adams and Reese has been selected by the Birmingham Business Journal for the fifth consecutive year among the “Healthiest Employers.” The Birmingham Business Journal, in partnership with Healthiest Employers, honors organizations with policies and initiatives promoting a healthy workplace.
Companies will be honored at an awards breakfast, the Health & Wellness Expo and Healthiest Employers Awards, on Thursday, July 31 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at The Harbert Center.
In 2010, Adams and Reese ranked No. 1 overall in Birmingham.
The firm’s Birmingham office has a partnership with the YMCA where they waive the enrollment fee for 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 “Start a Healthy Routine in 2014.”
In the seven years of the program, more than 500 employees have dropped a collective total of more than 6,000 pounds. The Birmingham office also hosts weekly ping-pong tournaments among attorneys and staff, and there is office space for exercise.
Companies were selected based on the results of a survey, which was conducted by Healthiest Employers.
