Health & Financial Wellness Articles

More employees than ever before are looking for employers who take their financial wellness and health into account. How can you help your employees stay healthy and manage their financial futures?


Every employee values workplace perks but does its importance outweigh being paid more?

Open Enrollment is in full swing and if you’re a small business owner with the ability to offer employees benefits and compensation packages, you’re probably already hearing all about it. Your employees are making the best decisions they can right now to make sure they’re enrolled in health insurance plans that make sense for them. Even as Open Enrollment progresses, there are still several considerations small business owners and leaders need to have.

Health and financial wellness plans have evolved quickly in the last few years, offering employees newer and better options to relieve some of the money-related stress they experience and plan better for retirement. The next step in this evolution is access to personalized financial wellness plans for each employee. Why is this so important and why are personal financial advisors in vogue now?

It seems pretty obvious that health and financial wellness benefits ought to be very popular and should enjoy high levels of employee engagement. Some are popular and do enjoy high levels of engagement, but many don't. To figure out what doesn't work is easiest if we ask which benefits get the most engagement and work backwards from there.

Americans are worried, some more than others. The source of worry? Money. And as we are reminded in the lyrics to a song from Cabaret, “Money makes the world go ‘round.” It does. Money buys more than things, it buys choices. And there’s an unhappy percentage of Americans that correctly perceive they have no choices at all. This is why Human Resources departments and companies need to provide health and financial wellness options for employees.

Your employees might be confused when they walk into the office for the first time and are handed an employee benefits and compensation packet showing the various options and benefits of a 401(b) retirement plan rather than the standard 401(k).

Financial wellness has long been a hot topic for employees and employers even before millennials started taking jobs while saddled with huge student debt amounts. With tax season mostly over, there’s no better time to discuss how you can help employees be more secure with their finances.

Amidst the cascade of sexual harassment claims and scandals emerge ways a culture of harassment can carry on in any workplace.

There has been a shift of considerable proportion in the workforce, as millennials are eclipsing Baby Boomers and Gen X. Many things are changing in the workplace, including benefits packages and incentives. As every one person out of three currently working is a millennial, their wants – especially relating to the “goodies” beyond standard employee compensation that an employee reaps from a company – must be considered.

It’s the week between Christmas and New Year’s and everyone wants and needs time off. How can we manage vacation time off and workloads to make the holiday times pleasant for all?

It seemed that, especially with the widespread use of HR communication video, working from home or working remotely would be the trend of the future, then IBM announced it was bringing its remote workers back to the office.

Research has demonstrated that video is an extremely powerful way to communicate with employees. People remember what they see and hear far better than what they read. And they are more likely to watch something than read it. The impact of a video communication agency is, therefore, wide-ranging and can turn up in interesting ways. For instance, it can improve employee health.

Today, companies are embracing wellness programs and using them as a way to keep employees and the company in good shape. As employees continue to be more health-conscious, companies continue to encourage employees to stay healthy.
