Employee Financial Wellbeing

Learn how your organization can benefit from employee financial wellbeing. 

What is Employee Financial Wellbeing?

Employee financial wellbeing is the study of an employee’s financial health and ability to confidently manage financial life today while preparing for the future and anything unexpected.

Organizations can influence employee financial wellbeing and improve overall workforce resilience by offering retirement and health benefits, support in obtaining retirement income, tailored financial education and planning and guidance on achieving non-retirement savings goals.

Why is Employee Financial Wellbeing Important?

Financial wellbeing is a key component of an employee’s overall wellbeing. And organizations are only as strong as their workforce. It’s a common misconception among employers that if an individual is in employment, they will be relatively financially healthy — but stressors ranging from student loan debt to inadequate retirement savings can lead to higher rates of employee absenteeism, presenteeism, and a lack of motivation, productivity, and engagement.

Implementing a tailored and effective employee financial wellbeing program can help employers to empower their employees and bolster workforce resilience.
