Cox Enterprises Benefits Help Employees Be Healthy On #NationalRunningDay and Throughout the Year

Jun 3, 2015 6:15 PM ET

Today is #NationalRunningDay, and people across the nation are celebrating through healthy, active lifestyles. Cox Enterprises benefits are designed to help employees meet their health, retirement, living and career needs. Among the features of this package are a comprehensive health and wellness program, as well as retirement and savings benefits that include a pension plan and retiree medical, something offered by only 6 percent of Fortune 500 companies. Additionally, we recognize that our employees need to maintain a healthy work/life balance. From generous vacation packages to time-off options that help manage the unexpected, our approach to workplace benefits and policies is one designed to manage the day-to-day demands of life.

With this in mind, we introduced our “Know Your Numbers” program four years ago to help employees understand and improve their financial and physical health in a meaningful way. For retirement, Know Your Numbers provides a personal readiness statement to eligible Cox employees that shows if they are on target for a comfortable retirement. On the health side of the equation, Know Your Numbers provides actionable data through free annual screenings to improve health while helping control costs. Our healthy workplace initiatives also include numerous personal coaching, weight loss and smoking cessation programs.
