The Shortlister team descended on the HR Tech conference in early October. We met with countless vendors, talked with many consultants and took in plenty of sessions. What did we learn through all of this? HR technology is not really about technology for HR teams anymore. It’s all about the employees (and candidates)!
Shortlister hosted Joe Saari, Founder of Financial Fitness Group, to share data and real-life case studies related to leading employers who are improving the individual financial fitness of their employees and overall financial fitness of their workplace.
Financial Fitness Group is a leading provider of cloud-based, independent and unbiased financial education and engagement platform. Their platform has been proven to improve users’ financial aptitude, behavior, and confidence. Financial Fitness Group was founded in 1998 based on scientific research on how to improve the financial literacy of the citizens of the United States. That research continues to this day and is the driving force, along with their clients, to continuously meet the new challenges facing those with financial stress.
Financial Fitness Group has developed a Financial Fitness ScoreTM, consisting of an assessment of financial Aptitude, Behavior, and Confidence. Low scores in these areas are indicative of financial stress and cost employers $100 billion per year in lost profits and productivity.

Each year Shortlister conducts a survey of the nation’s top benefit consultants to analyze current purchasing trends and identify emerging areas of interest.

Our goal remains the same: empower employer, consultant and provider stakeholders with objective and unbiased insights on what’s trending and what employers are actually buying.
