Financial Wellbeing

4/7/2016 1:55 PM EDT

During tough and challenging economic times, financial wellbeing is a priority for many if not most employees. And an important dimension of Career Wellbeing and of Social Wellbeing is the financial health of employees-often earned income and accumulated financial assets are practical priorities but also serve as a way to promote status. And the financial strength of individuals also often leads to their being able to provide funds and other resources to worthy community improvement efforts (community wellbeing is the fifth dimension of Gallup's Wellbeing findings)

Thus, the security and leverage that employees can gain and use in other important ways is an important determinant of wellbeing, which is of value in both good times and in tough times. Ideas posted in this topic area should reflect ways that teamwork, collaboration and group action can support Financial Wellbeing.

I posted an article that describes the main priorities for employee benefits among small employers. In the article you will see that of the most popular benefits offered among small employers to their employees are benefits that are financial in nature. So, clearly financial wellbeing is important and things that employers can do to help their employees help themselves to improve their financial wellbeing are highly valued.

Check out the full article I posted on the Documents tab in the financial wellbeing section of the tab. This article describes the emerging value being created by employers who offer a range of value-priced "voluntary" benefits options that are either entirely paid for by the employees who elect them or are partially or wholly-paid by the employer. You will note that the article speaks to the interest in financial wellbeing solutions.

I was pleased to read about the fine Financial wellbeing program that is put on by Choice Hotels for its employees. Check the entire reprint of the article in the Documents tab in the Financial wellness folder.

I just read an interesting article that was on Bloomberg.com about how there are emerging new financial instruments that can be included as a part of a well-designed retirement plan. These particular concepts, while still evolving, can be used to provide a "lifetime income stream" which is similar to the benefits of the old traditional pension plans which have gone by the wayside in favor of 401Ks and defined contributions versus defined benefits. Tools like this are being aimed at the payout period of 75+ years old where assets in 401K's and the like may be reduced and healthcare costs may rise substantially.

Worth reading. Here is the link (below):

I an trying to save at least 25% of my income for my retirement account. It will be hard, but if I have a goal then it will be more likely that I will reach it...or if falling short end up in a better place than with no goal at all :).

This blog refers to very interesting new data that reinforces pretty much what we already know. The issue it doesn't address, which is the crux of the issue from my perspective, is the issue of what policy changes can be made and what private market solutions can be provided that can help us deal with this pending crisis-a "perfect unhealthy storm"?
