For the 11th consecutive year, the New Orleans office of the law firm of Adams and Reese has been named among the “Best Places to Work” by New Orleans CityBusiness. Adams and Reese has been named to the prestigious list since 2004, and in 2012, the law firm was named No. 1 in the large company category among the “Best Places to Work.”
CityBusiness selected 35 honorees in the large company category (more than 50 employees) and 15 honorees in the small business category (fewer than 50 employees). All 50 companies chosen will be honored at an awards event at noon Friday, Dec. 5, at the Hyatt Regency. The top three large and small companies will be announced at the event.
All honorees will be profiled in a special publication that will be part of the Dec. 12 issue of CityBusiness.
Adams and Reese was chosen as an honoree based on the results of an online employee survey completed by New Orleans office employees. Factors that influenced the firm's ranking were such benefits as competitive salaries, maternity and day-care options, health, prescription and dental benefits, 401(k) and profit sharing plans, life and disability plans, employee recognition programs and a commitment to personal health by holding an annual Health Fair, weight loss program and providing discounts for health club memberships.
Additionally, the opportunity for all employees to participate in HUGS, the firm’s award-winning corporate philanthropy program, weighed in heavily to make Adams and Reese one the top employer-friendly companies in the city. For attorneys, the opportunity to participate in CA&RE, the firm’s official pro bono program, is considered a unique and important part of belonging to the firm.
Aside from the Adams and Reese New Orleans office, the Baton Rouge, Birmingham, Jackson, Memphis, Nashville and Tampa offices have also been recognized among the “Best Places to Work” by publications in their respective communities.
