As a signatory of the American Bar Association’s Pledge for Well-Being, Fox takes a holistic approach to the promotion of employee health and well-being. Through our award-winning Fox Fit & Well Program, we offer a comprehensive suite of tools and programs to enable wellness on multiple fronts: physical, social, emotional, financial, intellectual, occupational, environmental and spiritual.
Since launching the Fox Fit & Well Program in 2009, the firm has worked with its health care carriers and various vendors, including The Vitality Group, to pursue its mission of educating, inspiring, engaging and incentivizing attorneys and staff to maintain balance and adopt healthy lifestyles.
The firm’s partnership with The Vitality Group, which began in 2012, is the centerpiece of the wellness program. The Vitality program helps employees establish personal, achievable goals that they can reach by taking specific wellness steps and following individualized action plans. We provide wellness activities that address physical fitness (tracking steps and gym workouts), mental health (mindfulness, sleep tracking, mental well-being reviews) and prevention (health screenings), in addition to personal health coaching and other services. The firm’s Employee Assistance Program provides additional resources for mental well-being, including one-on-one support from licensed professional counselors to address personal issues including stress, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, financial pressures and more. We also offer behavioral health services seven days a week via online video consultations with mental health professionals, at an affordable cost that can be applied toward annual deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums. Fox has a dedicated Benefits Manager with direct responsibility and ownership of its wellness program, demonstrating the high priority the firm places on employee health and well-being.
The firm has received numerous accolades across the country since the inception of the Fox Fit & Well program a decade ago. In 2020, Healthiest Employers, an independent evaluator of employee wellness programs, named Fox among the Healthiest Employers honorees in Philadelphia. The program was recognized in previous years by Crain’s Chicago Business, Philadelphia Business Journal, Pittsburgh Business Times, New York Business Journal, Silicon Valley Business Journal, SmartCEO Magazine, South Florida Business Journal and Washington Business Journal in each of their healthiest employer honors. In 2015, the firm was also ranked #30 on Healthiest Employers’ list of Healthiest 100 Employers in America.
