Employee financial health is an urgent, cross-sector trending topic extending beyond employee benefits into opportunities for technology and innovation to create a more inclusive and equitable financial health culture for global workforces. Employers are increasingly aware that their employees' health and well-being—physical, emotional and financial—has a direct impact on work performance and the company's bottom line. In response, a growing number of organizations are incorporating financial health into the product suites they offer employees. HR professionals have a unique opportunity to lead innovation around financial health. This session helps you leverage your organization’s unique position as both a distributor of financial products and an influencer over financial decisions, including those related to retirement plans, insurance and pretax spending accounts. You will be better able to assist employees in navigating financial challenges and improving their financial health.

  • Learn how businesses can ensure that their entire workforce has access to the products and services that will best help them build resilience and thrive.
  • Understand how HR teams can make the case for the importance of financial health alongside mental and medical health and provide a framework for assessing and measuring it.
  • Learn how organizations can adapt and sustain financial health even as work rapidly evolves across industries, including the rise of the gig economy and the decline in traditional employment structures.
