When employees are financially stressed, they spend three or more hours a week – approximately 150 hours per year – worrying about personal finances or dealing with them at work.
A financial wellness program is a soft benefit, so if you feel anxious about offering this benefit, you’re not alone. There are a lot of questions to consider:
- Will employees be engaged in the program?
- Will productivity improve?
- Will turnover decrease?
- Will this program improve our balance sheet?
- And, more importantly, how to measure ROI?
