Simmons Hanly Conroy LLC, one of the largest plaintiff’s law firms in the St. Louis area, is a finalist for the 2013 Healthiest Employer in St. Louis, an award presented by the St. Louis Business Journal. The firm was also named a finalist in 2011.
The award honors the most outstanding health and wellness programs created and implemented by local companies. It also recognizes companies and nonprofit entities’ commitment to making wellness a priority and proactively shapes the health of their employees.
The Firm Wellness Program currently offers a variety of resources and activities to help employees sustain and jumpstart a healthy lifestyle. The Firm’s wellness plan provides well-rounded support for employees’ health development and needs, including informative events and resources such as wellness exams and exercise challenges, weekly delivery of healthy food choices, regular nurse visits and complimentary gym memberships.
“Helping our employees meet their health goals has always been a priority for the firm and our management team,” said Gregg Kirkland, CEO of the Firm. “We’re honored to once again receive this recognition as one of St. Louis’s Healthiest Employers.”
Attorney John Simmons started the firm in 1999 with 7 employees and a vision to provide clients facing life-changing injuries with exceptional legal care. Today, the firm employs more than 200 employees and has grown to offer its clients a variety of complex litigation services on a contingent-fee basis. It has recovered more than $4 billion in verdicts and settlements on behalf of its clients in litigation involving mesothelioma and asbestos-related cancer, dangerous drugs and medical devices, business disputes, intellectual property infringement, environmental contamination and personal injuries.
The firm joins a list of 30 other St. Louis businesses on the Healthiest Employer finalists list. The firm is ranked in Category 4 of companies with 100 to 499 employees. Applicants submitted a detailed description of their company wellness programs, health benefits and other related activities. In addition, company employees took an online wellness survey, sponsored by Healthiest Employers.
Finalists will be honored with an awards banquet Thursday, Oct. 10, at the Renaissance Grand Hotel where the 2013 award winners will be announced. A special section profiling the finalists and the winners will run in the Oct. 11 edition of the Business Journal.
