Last week, Shortlister hosted an exclusive webinar tailored for benefits advisors keen on staying ahead of the curve! As you prepare for the upcoming benefits season, it’s crucial to explore innovative solutions that can enhance both the financial and mental well-being of your client’s employees.

During the session, Keith Knowles, RVP of Sales at Immediate, delved into the advantages of Earned Wage Access (EWA), highlighting its profound impact on employee satisfaction, productivity, and retention.

Facts reveal the reality: The workforce is struggling financially

  • 70% are living paycheck to paycheck, including those who make six figures.*
  • 97% of full-time employees have financial stress, and 87% said it affects them.*
  • 61% who have paid a bill late say they didn’t have enough money to cover the cost.*
  • 47% can’t cover a $400 expense with cash, savings, or a credit card.*

With absenteeism, presenteeism, and turnover plaguing our workplaces, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to combat staffing challenges. Without employees showing up when expected or performing at their highest levels due to fatigue – not only is there a costly financial loss but morale drops too.

Financial, mental and physical health are connected

Financial stress leads to lower mental health, less engaged employees, and increased costs to the employer.

  • 80% of Americans confirmed that financial debt negatively affected their mental health.*
  • 50% of employees who are distracted by their finances at work say they spend three or more working hours each week thinking about or dealing with issues related to their personal finances.**
