PLANSPONSOR: Plan Progress: How to Increase Employees’ Financial Wellness
A recent survey found a majority of employees say it is important for employers to offer financial wellness programs, and they are more likely to stay with an employer that does so. Another survey found employees who have participated in a wellness program are much more confident about their progress on key markers of good retirement planning than those who are not offered resources or who do not participate. Yet, that same survey found the rate of employees who are using such help is lacking.
Join PLANSPONSOR and a panel of industry experts as they discuss:
• The advantages of offering a financial wellness program to employees;
• How to structure such a program; and
• Suggestions for getting employees to participate in a financial wellness program.
