Workplace-Based Financial Wellness – A New Landscape for Employers
The most recent SHRM survey on employee financial wellness reported that 70% of HR professionals indicate that personal financial challenges have a significant impact on overall employee performance. Of these HR professionals, about one-half reported that employees’ stress and the ability to focus on work were the key aspects of employee performance that were most negatively affected by personal financial challenges.
 
Of course, this factors into workplace productivity and employer bottom line profits. Considering a newly released medical related survey, stress related to financial issues could also have a significant impact on employee health, safety and well-being. While 72% of us reported feeling stressed about money, the growing workforce population, young adults and millennial’s, (75%) are feeling the most pain.
   
Are HR professionals seriously addressing the issue? How can the HR department identify, lead and develop effective financial wellness programs in a strategic effort to better engage a rapid demographically changing workforce while helping C level management reverse some of the profit draining related costs.

Learning objectives for attendees:

This session will present trending research and leading edge collaborations while addressing the following items.

•The high cost of low well being.
•The related impact of employee turnover.
•Key components of workplace-based financial wellness programs.
•How employers benefit from offering financial wellness programs.
•Research and case management to increase employee engagement and participation.
•Potential obstacles for employers.
•The accrued multiple benefits to both employers their employees.
•How to identify the true return on investment per employee.
