How We Can Help Your Business
Supporting Employee Financial Wellness
What’s the biggest stress for Canadians? Money. It ranks higher than work, health, and even family obligations.
What are Canadians most stressed about? Money.
According to a recent report, Canadian companies are losing $16 billion in productivity each year due to worker absenteeism, and much of that can be attributed to stress.
Financially-stressed Canadians spend an average of 16 hours a week worrying about their financial situation—that’s 832 hours of lost time per year! Not only can these worries lead to absenteeism and absent-mindedness, they can also become dangerous or deadly for workers operating heavy machinery or equipment.
Less Stress For a More Productive Workplace
Research shows that improving employee financial literacy can lead to:
- Increased employee retention and morale
- Increased productivity
