Fox Rothschild Named Healthiest Employer by Crain’s Chicago BusinessNovember 9, 2016 – Press Releases
Cementing its commitment to the health and wellness of its attorneys and staff, Fox Rothschild LLP was named among the Healthiest Employers in Illinois by Crain’s Chicago Business for its proactive approach to improving the overall well-being of its employees.
Fox was recognized in the “Employers with 500-1,499 Employees” category for the award and highlighted for the Fox Fit & Well program, which is a much-lauded wellness program designed to help attorneys, staff and their families reach their health and wellness goals. The program is offered to all employees throughout the firm’s national network of 22 offices.
“We are thrilled to be recognized for our proactive work in promoting firmwide wellness in what is one of Fox’s newest offices,” said Anne Slattery, Fox’s Employee Programs Manager. “The firm entered the Chicago market in 2015. It is a testament to the firm’s sustained commitment to the health of its attorneys and staff to have been named to this prestigious list.”
The firm launched its award-winning Fit & Well initiative in 2009, which includes “yoga at lunch” programs, healthy breakfast gatherings, Fitbit Zip™ distribution and a partnership with Vitality – an outside wellness vendor that enables both employees and their family members to track wellness goals and receive incentives for activities completed.
Nearly 70 to 90 percent of health care costs are due to unhealthy choices and preventable risks. The Fox Fit & Well program is designed to help participants stay healthy and reduce overall health care costs through heightened awareness/education of preventive and chronic care management. The program allows participants to set specific wellness goals, develop steps to achieve those goals and track progress through simple online access.
Fox’s Fit & Well program has been widely lauded and recognized for its success. The firm was named six times by the Philadelphia Business Journal as among the Healthiest Employers in Philadelphia and by the Silicon Valley Business Journal as one of the Healthiest Employers in the Bay Area in 2015 and 2016, among numerous other awards.
