PricewaterhouseCoopers conducted an Employee Financial Wellness Survey, which delves into why employee wellness initiatives matter to an organisation. Many points were raised in the survey including stress pertaining to finances, the impact it has on personal and work life, and programs to combat the financial stress.
A point to be highlighted, is the fact that 20% of employees surveyed would sacrifice a portion of their future pay increases for more physical and mental health initiatives. It confirms the value employees place on benefits in the workplace, particularly those pertaining to health. The good news is that as an employer, benefits relating to physical and mental health can be made available to employees at no extra cost to you.
A voluntary private health insurance plan, gives employees access to discounted insurance premiums, whilst building a pool of wellness funds which can be utilised for onsite flu shots, Health Risk Assessments (HRA), educational seminars and more.
