Financial wellness programs are a growing benefit offering among employers. Employers realize that financially well employees are better able to prepare for retirement. Plan sponsors may turn to their recordkeepers to provide financial wellness programs. If so, they need to consider that the program should go beyond just education and spur participants to action. Since health care costs are a top concern for employees, a best practice would be to address that in any financial wellness program. Measuring the success of the program can help plan sponsors and providers make any needed changes. This edition of PLANSPONSOR Weekend offers insight for implementing a successful financial wellness program.
