MetLife Sponsors Financial Wellness Roundtable at EHBC in Washington D.C.

MetLife, the largest the largest life insurer in the United States, will sponsor the first Financial Wellness in the Workplace Employer Forum at the Employer Healthcare & Benefits Congress in Washington D.C. from September 25 – 28.

According to a 2015 study conducted by the American Psychological Association, three-quarters of Americans experience financial stress some of the time, and a quarter of them experience “extreme” financial stress, making it the number one source of stress in the nation. This stress can play an impact in all areas of an employee’s life, from their relationships, to their health and even their jobs, with studies showing a link between financial stress and absenteeism.

To combat this issue, and to help their employees deal with their financial woes, employers are beginning to see the value of “financial wellness programs” to help their employees better manage their finances.

Join the Corporate Health & Wellness Association’s first Financial Wellness in the Workplace Employer Forum, Powered by MetLife, to network, share best practices and address the challenges employers are facing in this growing wellness sector.

This interactive forum will allow employers to share and address key questions such as:

  • What does financial wellness mean to you?
  • Why should an employer help an employee with financial matters?
  • How the program is structured/what is the offering?
  • How does your diverse workforce (age, gender, level, etc.) impact the program offering?
  • How are you measuring the success of your programs?
  • Were there specific barriers that you faced?
  • What do you think are the key elements for a financial wellness program?

Presenter Jeff Tulloch, Vice President, PlanSmart® & Business Advantage at MetLife will also host an Educational Breakout Session on Monday, September 26th titled “Employee Financial Wellness: One Size Does Not Fit All”.
