Financial Wellness

The Need: Financial Wellness programming has been steadily making its way into wellness strategies of employers statewide for the last few years. This is in response to the fact that financial wellness concerns are not left at home when employees come to work, stress from financial troubles can travel to the workplace in the form of productivity and engagement issues. Providing employees with the right education and resources at the right time can go a long way in assisting them as they work to improve their situation. Because of this, FABOH has taken Financial Wellness on as a priority area for our members by providing company specific data, education on community resources, ready to use awareness materials on top risk areas, and consultation to help put it all together.

Data: To support our member companies in their work to improve the financial wellness of their employees, FABOH has identified six financial wellness questions that can be added to the HRA to measure risk. Collecting this data provides employers with the ability to identify specific risk areas amongst their population and also measure changes year to year to determine if intervention efforts were successful. Talk to your SSM representative prior to your HRA to ensure these questions are included.

Customization: Each of our member's needs around Financial Wellness is unique to their workforce and Corporate Culture. Because of this, we recommend that members interested in adopting a Financial Wellness strategy, connect with FABOH Wellness Director Jeff Butz at This email address is being protected from spambots.
