As part of our holistic approach, we believe that financial wellness is an important part of overall wellness. If a person has financial challenges or is worried about how they will be able to afford to retire, it can impact not only their productivity at work but also their quality of life.
As part of the service we offer, we recently brought a financial education seminar to one our clients. The session opened with an overview on some current trends we are seeing in the economy. We then discussed the impacts of the current economic climate on retirement planning. Finally, we reviewed the investment options available under the company’s 401(k) program and spoke on how these could be used to develop a personalized strategy for retirement savings.
Health Metrics and Awareness
Another of our clients wanted to work with us to improve employee awareness on everyday health. In collaboration with the company, we developed an initiative to provide wearable health tracker devices to all employees. By matching the needs of the employees with available technologies, we settled on a device from STYR labs. Our recommendation was based on cost, wide platform support and availability of easy to use coaching resources. The app allows either individuals or the company to initiate health challenge tasks.
These are just a few examples showing how we bring wellness to our clients.
