How Much Do Companies Save by Offering a Financial Education Program to Their Employees?




tom watson

According to the Wall Street Journal, about 70% of employees are living paycheck to paycheck. Research by the Personal Finance Employee Education Foundation (www.personalfinancefoundation.org) found that these employees are costing their employer between $450-$2000 per year in loss of productivity, absenteeism, turnover, workplace distractions, increased healthcare costs and theft. For example, in a company with 400 employees where only 35% are financially unhealthy, that’s a loss of $63,000 each year (35% of 400 = 140 employees x $450 = $63,000).


Companies providing a financial wellness program to their employees show results that include improvement in workplace productivity, employee morale and company loyalty, while reducing absenteeism, turnover and operational risk across the company. Financial education programs have the effect of saving companies hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.


A recent article in Personal Finance and Worker Productivity, concluded that “workplace financial training can help ALL workers, including those with few or no money problems find an extra $1,200 a year to save.”
