Want To Provide Value To Your Employees? Support Their Financial Wellness

Financial wellness is a universal need, like quality healthcare and education. Yet, financial well-being has become more challenging for many Americans due to rising housing costs, student loan and credit card debt, and the lack of financial knowledge. 

It’s important to understand just how stressed out employees have become. Their anxiety affects your company and their quality of life. A study by PwC demonstrate why financial wellness should be a corporate priority:

• Personal finances are the No. 1 stressor for employees.

• 47% of employees report that financial worries have either caused them to occasionally miss work or impacted their productivity at work.

• Fewer than half of baby boomers are confident about their retirement. Click here to read more of the articles from Forbes

5 Myths About Employers’ Role in Financial Wellness

Despite the compelling reasons for employers to adopt financial wellness benefits, there are a few myths that have been holding benefits managers back when it comes to implementing these programs.

For example, some people prefer to save rather than spend. They often experience stress and anxiety when they’re unable to save, whereas some people are less worried about saving as long as they have enough to get by.
