Please describe any well-being initiatives or programs at your firm

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. The firm’s partnership with The Vitality Group 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.
