Workers in the U.S. are stressed about their finances, and employers are increasingly seeing the impact of this financial stress on job and company performance. The Financial Health Network offers strategies for employers and solutions providers to support the financial well-being of employees.

Understanding Workplace Financial Health

In our Workplace work to date, the Financial Health Network has uncovered several key findings:


  • Financial health challenges impact employees at all salary levels.

  • Employees are looking to their employers for solutions to help them manage their financial needs.

  • While employees are concerned about long-term goals like saving for retirement, many also have short-term needs like building emergency savings, managing their bills and spending, and paying down debt.

  • There is a gap between the financial health benefits employees want and what employers offer, creating an opportunity for employers to increase employee engagement and set themselves apart in the marketplace.
