Reed Smith LLP is known as an active, on the move Big Law competitor, and, this summer, more than 900 of its lawyers and staff worldwide are participating in the global law firm’s “Get Moving Challenge.” Launched by Reed Smith’s Wellness Works Team, the Get Moving Challenge uses creative local activities, education, friendly competitions and technology to help its people increase their personal physical activity levels.

“We are delighted by the enthusiasm for our first annual Get Moving Challenge,” said Casey Ryan, Global Head of Legal Personnel at Reed Smith, a member of its Senior Management Team, and a Wellness Works stalwart. “June and July are wonderful months to be out and about with co-workers, friends and family, and the firm’s encouragement and support have helped many of us take another step forward in our personal journeys to improve overall wellness.”

Wellness Works was launched in January to promote, support and sustain the well-being of all employees of the firm in response to the inherently high pressure environment of the legal profession.  The initiative comprises stress management, work-life balance, healthy habits, and health mindfulness.
