Businesses are struggling with higher healthcare costs, increased disability claims and lower productivity from their employees. These workers are costing corporations millions of dollars each year.
Why is this happening?
One of the major contributing factors might surprise you: financially stressed employees.
Financial stress suppresses an employee’s immune system, driving up healthcare costs and disability claims. Employees with money problems tend to fight with their spouse, which often negatively impacts their work productivity.
Here’s how financially stressed employees might be eating into your company’s bottomline profitability:
- Long breaks
- Overtime abuse
- Frequent phone calls
- Hostile demeanor
- Substance abuse
- Increase requests for 401K loans and hardship withdrawals
- Accidents, distractions, workers comp claims
- Increased use of employee assistance programs
- Wage garnishments
- Employee retention
- Requests for pay advances
- Increased requests for 401k loans and hardship withdrawals
It is estimated that financially stressed employees spend 20 hours per month on the job worrying and dealing with personal financial issues. Their minds are not on their work, and that not only impacts profitability, but also costs everyone your company deals with…
- Shareholders and owners
- Other employees
- Your customers and clients
