Stress can turn into a chronic illness. In the workplace, stress costs businesses up to $300 billion a year1 due to:
- Impaired performance and productivity.
- Higher absenteeism, turnover and complaints.
- Disengagement with the job, colleagues and customers.
For nearly 3 out of 4 adults, the main cause of stress is money and finances.2 Employees carry their worries with them to work, and that hurts productivity.
We can help by:
- Assessing employees’ perceived levels of stress.
- Offering unbiased information and resources to members at high risk due to stress.
- Reaching out with support and coaching to help manage stress.
- Linking members to their employer’s financial programs.
- Offering multiple assessments to trigger recommended content and activities to help individuals improve their financial well-being.
Being well means having a healthy mind and body. With the right help, employees can reduce stress, be more productive, and sleep better at night.
