Financial wellness is a trending buzzword among companies and within human resources (HR) departments across the United States. Today’s employees expect benefits that enhance not only their work environment but also their lives. One of those benefits is financial wellness (1).

There was a time when offering a decent salary, a 401(k), and a health insurance policy was enough to attract and retain high-quality workers. Times have changed, however, and it’s important to consider what employees want from their employer and how to keep them loyal. Having benefits that show you care about employee well-being is a great start.

Studies show that

  • 30% of Millennials say that incentives from their employer help them take steps to improve their financial well-being (2)
  • 62% of employees agree that they’re looking to their employers for more help in achieving financial security through employee benefits2
  • 42% of employees agree that employers have a responsibility for the financial wellbeing of their employees (3)
