Survey Report: “Assessing the Merits and Challenges of Financial Wellness"

In Assessing the Merits and Challenges of Financial Wellness, SBS evaluates whether financial wellness programs are a wise choice and welcome addition to the traditional employee benefits package.

Financial wellness is an increasingly popular topic, but there is no consensus about the value of financial wellness programs in the workplace. While clear advantages and perceived value have been identified, several obstacles remain.

SBS surveyed employers and three key themes emerged from the research:
  1. There is a general lack of understanding about what financial wellness programs deliver to both employers and employees. 
  2. Financial wellness programs may not be the right fit for some organizations. 
  3. There’s no easy way to calculate a return on investment from financial wellness programs.
