Employee Financial Stress is Costing You $$$

One in five workers reports feeling high levels of stress, and the top two drivers for this are economic: their jobs and their financial situations.1 This stress affects not only the individuals experiencing it, but also the organizations employing them. Financial strain is related to reduced work productivity; increased risk for physical ailments such as fatigue, headaches, ulcers, and anxiety leading to increased absenteeism; and lower levels of pay satisfaction and organizational commitment. In one study, four out of five employers reported that their employees’ personal financial issues are negatively impacting their job performance.2 You can help reduce your employees’ financial stress and increase productivity by offering individual financial coaching as an employee benefit.
