Financial Wellness

Financial Wellness – An Important Part of Any Comprehensive Employee Benefits Plan*

We all know how important it is to limit distractions at work. It seems obvious that productivity will suffer when an employee is sick and working at a reduced capacity or unable to work altogether. But what about if the employee is in perfect physical health, but struggling with their personal finances. This can cause stress and distractions that are much less obvious than say, the flu, but can still result in reduced productivity in the workplace a.k.a. presenteeism.

As the overall well-being of employees has come to the forefront of preventing absenteeism and presenteeism, Financial Wellness has become a “hot topic”. A growing number of employers have begun incorporating Financial Wellness programs to help employees help themselves with their personal finances. An Employee Financial Wellness Survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers showed that 52 percent of workers and 64 percent of Millennials said they are stressed about their finances. And they feel the stress is increasing. Forty-five percent said their finance-related stress had increased during the past year. The study also showed that stress about finances is distracting workers as 46 percent spend three or more hours during the workweek dealing with or thinking about financial issues.
