Workplace Financial Wellness

 

Why the Workplace

Holistic financial wellness programs have the power to establish a more satisfied, engaged, and productive workforce. Beyond an attractive benefit for individual employees, promoting financial capability boosts workplace engagement and productivity. Many companies are implementing new programs to help employees with their finances. Establishing effective workplace programs will be crucial for employers who want to help their workers and help themselves.

The workplace is a natural fit for financial wellness programs, as it creates a mutually beneficial environment of increased engagement and financial security. Crucial financial decisions are made at work every day, and employers can take advantage of financial milestones (e.g. hiring and promotions) to increase their workers’ financial well-being.
