Shortlister hosted Brian Hamilton, Senior Vice President of SmartDollar, to share more about the proven plan that has helped millions of employees take control of their money—even during a pandemic.
THE TRUTH ABOUT FINANCIAL WELLNESS
Americans are stressed. And we know employees bring this stress with them to work. 90% of employees said they were concerned with money during this pandemic, and the number one concern was not having enough emergency savings.
There are millions of options when looking for financial wellness benefits. Many of these programs offer solutions like automatic payroll deductions, payday advances, student loan refinancing, 401(k) loans or early withdrawals, short-term loans, and generic education. While these may sound like helpful benefits, they all come with drawbacks that will end up harming employees’ financial wellness and having a negative impact on businesses.
There is hope!
