As an employer, your employees' financial stress leads to
- Work time wasted
- Health issues
- Resentment over compensation issues
This leads to
- Higher payroll and HR costs
- Lower Profits
- A bad work environment
Money Stress is costing your company… BIG TIME!
Met Life's recent 9th Annual Study of Employee Benefit Trends reported that 53 percent of employees are concerned about having enough money to make ends meet with 40 percent claiming to live paycheck to paycheck and 30 percent admitting trouble paying their bills.
According to the Personal Finance Employee Education Foundation, only 24% of employees experience good to very high financial well-being. The rest? They have money stress and that has an expensive impact on the workplace. The costs of absenteeism, decreased productivity, turnover, garnishments, and physical health are exceptional. The study of of the impact of service members' money problems is staggering. Bad money choices cost the DoD (and tax payers) nearly a billion dollars a year. Money problems are not unique to service members.
According to the Society for Human Resource Management, 83 percent of human resource professionals indicate that personal financial challenges affect overall employee performance.
The problem is the accumulation of bad choices that your employees make in their personal spending. It's kinda not their fault. Most people don't seek out financial teachers and mentors.The consequence is learning from powerful marketers on how they should spend their money – which almost always leads to financial stress.
As an employer, you have the opportunity to solve this problem.
The best place to cure your employees' financial stress is in the workplace. A financial wellness plan is a critical component to caring for the whole soul of your employee.
