Fox Rothschild Named Healthiest Employer by Philadelphia Business Journal

July 7, 2016 – Press Releases

For the sixth time, the Philadelphia Business Journal has named Fox Rothschild LLP among the Healthiest Employers in Philadelphia for its proactive approach to improving the health of its employees.

The award is based on six criteria: culture and leadership commitment, foundational components, strategic planning, communications and marketing, programming and interventions, and reporting and analysis.

Named in the Employers with 500-1,499 Employees category, Fox is committed to the health and welfare of its attorneys and staff. The firm launched the much-lauded Fox 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.
