The need for financial wellness is clear
Finances are the number one source of daily stress for U.S. adults, and more than half of American households do not have a long-term financial plan.3 Financial stress distracts employees and can hurt the bottom line. Distraction, driven by financial distress, lowers productivity, increases turnover and affects employee health.3
