What is financial wellness? For the employee, it’s a measure of his financial health, which covers a range of indicators, such as debt-to-income ratio, emergency savings, and retirement readiness. For employers, it’s a program designed to help educate, motivate and empower employees to tackle those issues.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. You can’t talk about financial wellness without first taking a closer look at employee wellness as a whole: where did it come from, how did these programs evolve and do they really work?

Our 2017 Well-being Industry Prospectus report generated a ton of industry buzz and fantastic market feedback. Shortly after the release, the team over at Wellable approached us with an idea to feature the findings of the report to kick-off the very 1st episode of their new podcast series, which we thought would be a great format for digging into the data and sharing the findings. The Wellable team even created a visual to go along with the podcast and a great break-down of the minute markers for topic changes. It was great experience and we really enjoyed the opportunity to share the report’s findings with their audience. If you haven’t yet listened to the podcast, follow this link. They also created a SoundCloud link for those that want the audio on the go!
