Burr & Forman Named to Birmingham Business Journal's "Healthiest Employer's" List for 2015
Birmingham, Ala., July 31, 2015 - Burr & Forman LLP announces that the firm has been honored again by the Birmingham Business Journal on the publication's 2015 "Healthiest Employers" List.
Burr has been ranked as a finalist every year since the award's inception, and is a two-time first place winner. This year, Burr & Forman took the second place award in the Midsized Employers category. The firm was recognized for the award in the Birmingham Business Journal's July 31st edition.
Since the first wellness initiative was implemented at Burr & Forman in 2008, the firm has continued its commitment to healthy living through a variety of programs aimed at physical fitness, nutrition and reducing stress.
"We researched, obtained support of top leadership and formed a wellness committee comprised of folks throughout the firm. We defined our mission and goals, communicated them to our people and branded our program. We started small and grew," said Cathy Ogletree, Director of Human Recourses, on how the company overcame the challenge of starting the program.
The firm's wellness initiatives include annual biometric health screenings, an online health coaching website, a smoking cessation program, and flu shots to its employees and spouses. To further support healthy living, Burr & Forman offers fruit for purchase in break rooms, cutting-edge fitness devices, lunch-and-learn education programs with healthy meals, and most recently an "Eat Right for Life" challenge.
