Employees are often advised to leave their work at the office and not bring it home with them so they can have a good work-life balance. But what about not bringing personal stresses to the workplace? It can be hard to leave money concerns at home in today’s world when personal and work lives are so intertwined.
Finances can definitely be a source of stress for employees. While they may not talk freely about it at the water cooler you can be sure it is always on their mind.
It is important to remember that not only are these problems affecting employees but they can also impact a business in a number of ways such as:
- Decreased productivity
- Absenteeism or lateness
- Payroll deductions
- Mistakes being made due to lack of focus
- Creditor calls during work hours
- Short-term disability or worker’s compensation claims
It is in the best interest of employers to provide employees with quality financial programs and services resulting in employees who are more in control of – and less stressed about – their personal finances. This leads to benefits for both the employee and the employer.
Help your employees help themselves by providing them with financial programs and services that will allow them to take control of their money problems and their lives. This can include workshops, presentations or lunch-n-learns on money-related topics such as:
- Debt counselling
- Credit Reports
- Identity Theft
