Financial wellbeing as a measurable employee benefit
Helping organisations to assess their employees’ financial wellbeing and implement solutions to help them have more control over their personal finances.

At a time when financial literacy in the workplace is highly sought after across all generations, there’s a significant opportunity for employers to step in. By providing a benefit that helps reduce financial stress, you can positively influence the financial wellbeing of your employees.

What is financial wellbeing?

Financial wellbeing focuses on how an individual feels about money, and the impact that personal finances have on their overall wellbeing. It is an important aspect of employee wellbeing and many organisations choose to include it as an employee benefit.

The Money and Pension Service defines it as “knowing that you can pay the bills today, can deal with the unexpected, and are on track for a healthy financial future. In short: feeling confident and empowered about your money”*.

There are multiple definitions, all with a common theme, which can be summed up as:
• Confidence – to make informed decisions about money
• Control – of everyday budgeting and spend, debt management, short-and long-term savings
• Capacity – to absorb a financial shock such as an emergency cost or redundancy

Financial wellbeing is not simply about a lack of money worries, as anyone can experience financial stress from time to time. It’s about not being constantly worried about money, and having the capacity to manage everyday expenses as well as save for the future.
Why should it be part of an employee benefits package?
Organisations that offer employees financial wellbeing services are providing a valuable benefit that goes beyond the financial benefits of money management.

Money worries can be a significant cause of stress for employees at all salary levels, age groups and demographics, impacting mental health. To be precise, Gallagher’s Employee Financial Confidence Report revealed that 7 in 10 employees spend time at work on personal finance concerns every week, costing the economy $47 billion every year in lost productivity.

How do employers benefit?
Including employee financial wellbeing as part of a company’s benefit strategy can also lead to a number of tangible benefits for the employer, such as:

• Reduced employee stress and anxiety
• Reduced absenteeism in the workforce
• Increased productivity and performance
• Increased talent retention
• Greater appreciation of employee benefits which can lead to increased employee engagement and employer advocacy
