Financial Wellness Roars Into the Spotlight

Financial Wellness Roars Into the Spotlight

Financial wellness-related products and services are roaring into the spotlight to reconcile the financial gap.

Boston, October 9, 2019 – Employment levels in the U.S. may be high, but real earnings are not. The truth is that incomes have remained stagnant for nearly half a century. The costs of retirement, health, and college have soared in the same time span, creating a deepening gap between the two. This creates a financial impasse and becomes a major source of stress for many employees. Employers have been increasingly leaning on an assortment of benefits that lend themselves to improving employees’ financial well-being to bridge that gap.

This research captures views from a cross section of employer benefit decision-makers across employer sizes, and it identifies the trusted sources they turn to for obtaining advice, support, administration, and training for financial wellness services. It is based on a Q2 2019 quantitative survey of 303 human resource professionals and employer benefit decision-makers in the U.S. across a range of employer sizes.
