"Workers have a wide variety of financial needs and challenges," explained Rob Austin, director of Retirement Research at Aon Hewitt. "Employers are realizing that they need to provide a range of financial well-being tools and resources to help this diverse workforce and to truly make an impact on workers’ long and short-term savings goals."
Aon Hewitt also found that most employers (85 percent) say they are creating and adding financial well-being programs because it is "the right thing to do." Another 80 percent of employers report that their programs are designed to improve employee engagement.
"Workers say they want their employer to provide them with the resources to help them obtain a more secure financial future, and it seems that employers are stepping up to this request," added Austin. "In 2016, financial well-being programs will cement themselves as part of most employers’ total benefits package."
