Every employer’s goal is to have a team of happy and healthy employees. For that reason, employers should take note of the link between physical and financial health. For example, the stress an employee may experience as the result of financial insecurity can directly result in lost productivity and excessive claims on a health plan. With comprehensive programs in place this stress can be relieved and you will see gains in productivity and reduced claims on health care.
