For any organization, people are the engine of prosperity. To drive growth, they must be engaged and energized. Instead, many of them are distracted. And it’s no wonder why:

  • Nearly two-thirds of American workers live paycheck to paycheck.
  • 44 percent say they worry about their finances while they are at work.
  • More than half of U.S. households have less than $10,000 saved for retirement.
When workers have access to individual guidance and solutions from a trusted partner and worry less about money, they’re less stressed and less distracted on the job. This "wellness effect" means they’re more engaged both at work and at home.

In this program, Prudential thought leaders Anne Thibeault and Vishal Jain will provide insights about how companies can:

  • Discover the true financial wellness needs of their employee base.
  • Design a plan that meets these challenges head on.
  • Inspire employees to take action to get on the path to financial wellness.
  • Experience the power of The Wellness Effect, and reap its benefits, including higher productivity, improved employee satisfaction and lower turnover.
