LawFuel.com – Adams and Reese was named No. 1 in the large company category among the “Best Places to Work,” by New Orleans CityBusiness. The honor was announced at an awards event luncheon held December 14th at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans where Adams and Reese was named No. 1 out of 35 large companies honored at the event.
This is the first time Adams and Reese has been named No. 1 in the nine years the law firm has been named to “Best Places to Work” in New Orleans.
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 Birmingham, Jackson, Memphis and Nashville offices have also been recognized among the “Best Places to Work” by publications in their respective communities.
