Creating a Happier, Healthier, More Engaged and Productive Workforce

Wednesday 4:20 – 5:20pm

Session Description

The impact that employee financial stress has on lost productivity from absenteeism, exacerbated health issues, and employee turnover is understood, but now there is evidence that COVID-19 is exacerbating employees’ financial stress. SHRM confirms that financial stress, aggravated by COVID-19, is the leading cause of lost productivity, unplanned absences, lower job performance, and greater distractions among employees. Now more than ever, there is an incentive for employers to think more broadly about how to take positive actions around the health and well-being of their workforce.  Employers that embrace financial wellness solutions see payoffs in retention, performance, and health care costs.

  1. Understand the true cost of financial stress and (un)wellness has on your workforce and your organization.
  2. Learn how a holistic financial wellness solution can benefit your organizational goals and objectives.
  3. Discover how to evaluate and select a financial wellness solution.
