Since 2014, the Linfox-designed Healthy Fox program has connected thousands of team members with tools, resources and opportunities to encourage healthier lifestyle choices and create better mental health, general health, nutrition, fitness and strength.
“We know Healthy Fox achieves results through wellbeing enhancement opportunities. Whether it’s a movement campaign, mental health initiative, prioritised COVID-19 vaccines, free bowel cancer screening kits, general health/skin spot checks, yearly flu vaccines, or raising awareness about a range of health issues to support prevention and early intervention, Healthy Fox is dedicated to positive health outcomes,” said Mark.
“We have also boosted this support as COVID-19 intensifies challenges in our work and home lives, taking an emotional toll on many of us.”
