Rees Morrison’s Morsels #126 – posts longa, morsels breva

Weight-management programs at law firms coming to an RFP near you. In a 2008 survey of more than 450 employers with at least 1,000 workers, “Nearly three-quarters cited weight management plans as a chief strategy for maintaining affordable health care benefits.” The Harvard Bus. Rev., Vol. 87, Dec. 2009 at 30, explains the productivity and health benefits when employees avoid gaining too much weight. Someday we will see RFPs asking for the Body Mass Index (BMI) of the core team proposed by a law firm (See my post of July 10, 2009: health and welfare with 15 references and 4 metaposts.).

Unsexy, traditional, ineloquent, plain, and unstylish, the name of this blog has some old-fashioned values. Sometimes when I write, read, or hear the name of this blog I cringe just a tiny bit at its clunky, unclever, too-long ugliness. Then I take some solace in that it is very clear – law department management. Other blogs have cute names, oh-so-clever names. My stodgy name matches the tenor of its posts and intent: write clearly about solid ideas that matter to general counsel as managers.
