Fox Rothschild Named Among 2019 Healthiest Employers in Three Regions

As a testament to its ongoing commitment to the health and welfare of its attorneys and staff, Fox Rothschild LLP is pleased to announce that it has been ranked among the 2019 Healthiest Employers in Philadelphia, New York and South Florida by Healthiest Employers.

This distinction recognizes companies and organizations that prioritize employee health and provide programs that aid them in making healthy choices. Award applicants are evaluated across six categories: culture and leadership; foundational components; strategic planning; communication and marketing; programming and interventions; and reporting and analytics.

Fox takes a holistic approach to the promotion of employee well-being by offering tools and programs that encourage physical, psychological and financial health through its Fox Fit & Well program. Since launching the wellness 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. Fox received a 2016 Healthiest Employer recognition by the Philadelphia Business Journal and Crain’s Chicago Business and was ranked #30 on the list of 2015 Healthiest 100 Employers in America by Healthiest Employers. The firm has also previously been recognized by SmartCEO magazine, Silicon Valley Business Journal, Washington Business Journal and Pittsburgh Business Times in each of their healthiest employer honors.
