Money Wellness Solution for Employers
Employee Wellness initiatives are vital to a healthy workplace. Happy, healthy employees are more productive, which is good for both corporate culture and the bottom line. Does your employee wellness program contain proven strategies to reduce financial stress?
According to a survey done by the American Psychological Association, 72 percent of Americans reported feeling stressed about money. A recent article from SHRM reported that one in five workers reported feeling extremely stressed, mostly because of their job or finances. Those reporting high levels of stress were more than four times as likely to suffer from symptoms of fatigue, headaches, depression or other ailments. They were also twice as likely to report poor health overall, leading to more sick days, increased absenteeism and decreased productivity.
An occasional Lunch & Learn session on money management is not enough to help your employees create lasting change in the area of personal finance. According to Learning Solutions Magazine, within one hour of training, people will have forgotten an average of 50 percent of the information presented. Within 24 hours, they have forgotten an average of 70 percent of new information, and within a week, forgetting claims an average of 90 percent of it.
The Mindful Money Academy is a six-week program taught by Christine Luken, author and Financial Lifeguard. It utilizes immersion learning, multiple teaching formats, and group accountability to vastly increase retention and lasting behavior change.
The Mindful Money Academy immerses your employees in the financial wellness material for six weeks, rather than just one hour. Experts show that people require a minimum of 18 days to form a new, positive habit.
Employees learn and apply the Mindful Money curriculum in a variety of ways: live instruction, reading, writing, listening, and discussion.
Group support and accountability is encouraged and reinforced during the live sessions and in the online discussion group created exclusively for your employees. This greatly increases the likelihood of lasting behavior changes.
If you suspect your employees are suffering from financial stress, costing your company in lost productivity and higher healthcare costs, please contact Christine Luken for a 15-minute assessment of the match between the Mindful Money Academy and the wellness needs of your organization.
Classes are taught onsite at your company in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area, or via live webinar anywhere in the US or Canada.
