Organizations across Canada are recognizing the win-win of offering programs aimed at bolstering employee financial well-being. The advantages to doing this include reduced risks associated with governance obligations, lower levels of financial stress in the employee population and higher productivity. 

When Human Resources teams utilize internal programs and their plan administrators' tools and resources to educate employees on benefits and retirement savings plans the focus is rightly to enhance understanding and optimization. Therein lies the challenge. Are the established programs, tools and resources adequate to develop the skills and habits necessary to build financial resiliency in the employee population? 

Do you want to go one step further? Do you want to take a holistic approach to employee financial wellness, broaden the focus of your programs and include all aspects of financial well-being? This webinar dives into that question with analysis and discussion of the various options in program design and delivery that an organization may want to consider. In particular, the presenters explore the growing role of e-learning resources in the area of employee financial wellness.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand programs and resources that support employee financial wellness.
  • Analyze the effectiveness of such programs in achieving objective of improved employee financial well-being.
  • Learn how to measure program impact and effectiveness.
  • Gain insight on the expanding array of digital tools that can support employee financial wellness.
