Employee Financial Wellness


Zen and the Art of Employee Financial Wellness

Employees facing fewer financial worries and distractions; employers benefitting from a more focused, engaged, and productive workforce — employee financial wellness programs can help employees find balance and control over their finances, now and throughout their lifetime. Raising the level of employees’ financial consciousness can reduce absenteeism and lower turnover rates while raising employee satisfaction and improving the employer brand.

Helping Employees Get ‘To’ and ‘Through’ Retirement

Mercer’s approach to employee financial wellness focuses on engaging employees throughout their lives, not just at retirement. The objective is to help employees reach their goals for every stage of their “financial lives,” whether it’s saving for a house, a car, college, or retirement.

The Link Between Financial Wellness and Business

Organisations have every reason to want their employees to be financially sound. An effectively designed employee financial wellness program can help employers:

  • Bolster productivity, because employees aren’t distracted by financial worries.
  • Drive more predictable workforce flow throughout the organisation.
  • Increase employee engagement and retention.
  • Create more affordable retirement opportunities for all employees and enable career advancement opportunities for younger employees.

The Human Side of Data

Our methodology relies on data analytics to provide insights into employee behaviors. We use statistical analysis to isolate demographic and behavioral characteristics to find the most successful programs for employees. We then craft “personas” from the data to increase employee engagement. Our goal is to help employees develop a sustainable approach to financial wellness. To better ensure that both employees and employers derive maximum value, we perform a cost-benefits analysis.

Give Employees Help, Not Hype

There’s a lot of financial advice out there; most have a not-so-hidden agenda, linking advice to investment programs and products. At Mercer, we are transparent with our clients and help them be transparent with their employees.
