THE CONVERGENCE OF FINANCIAL EDUCATION AND WELLNESS

Kyle Williams, Chief Sales Officer, MEMD

As financial “illiteracy” paves the way to poor financial health, personal health follows suit.  Money problems and financial uncertainty are a leading cause of higher stress, hypertension, anxiety/depression, and relationship difficulties.  This plays out in workplace absenteeism and tardiness, including less productivity while at work.  Many studies have shown that employees spend as much as 30% of their time at work dealing with personal financial issues. Now, more than ever, employees need a sense of increased financial clarity and direction, which will increase their confidence, health and productivity.  The timing could not be better for employers to take a leadership role in helping their employees work toward a better financial well-being.
