4 ways to help your employees tackle financial stress. Financial stress is on the rise among your employees. Here are 4 common financial problems facing your employees and how Best Money Moves can help. 

Between rising housing costs and continued inflation, U.S. workers are facing financial stress on all sides. According to a survey conducted by SoFi at Work and Workplace Intelligence, employees spend around 25% of their work week worrying about money, resulting in significant productivity loss. Another 45% of employees feel that their employer is unconcerned with their financial well-being. 

Your employees want greater financial well-being and they’re looking to you for help managing financial strain. Best Money Moves is a financial wellness solution designed to help dial down employees’ most top-of-mind financial stresses. 

Here are 4 common financial problems facing your employees and how Best Money Moves can help.

1 Address employee mental health strain by diagnosing the root causes of financial stress.

Employee mental health is top of mind for many employees in the post-COVID workforce. Not having a firm grasp on personal finances adds significant strain to employee wellbeing. 42% of American adults said money had a negative impact on their mental health as reported by Bankrate’s Money and Mental Health survey. That’s why diagnosing employee financial stress is at the heart of everything Best Money Moves does.

Using a unique tracking system known as the Stressometer, employees can measure their financial stress across 14 financial categories. Best Money Moves will map these stressors and use our unique content mapping system to connect each user to the financial resources they need the most. Identifying the root causes of financial stress is the first step toward alleviating financial anxiety.

2. Help employees build their financial literacy and make smarter financial decisions.

In a report conducted by Guardian, the average American worker could only answer about half of the questions of a standardized personal finance test. And it’s no surprise why — it’s often in the best interest of the financial services industry to keep consumers confused about their options.

However, your employees shouldn’t need a PhD in economics just to understand their finances. That’s why Best Money Moves prioritizes thoroughness and readability when it comes to financial education. Users gain access to a library of 800+ educational resources, including articles, videos, webinars, and more, about all kinds of money management strategies.

3. Employees are unprepared for a financial emergency. Help them catch up.

According to a survey by MagnifyMoney, 20% of Americans reported that they put $0 towards emergency savings during 2021. Successful savings starts with a strong budget, so Best Money Moves offers intuitive tools for both.

The Best Money Moves budget tool uses real-world data about an employee’s monthly income and living situation to create personalized budget goals (their Best Money Moves). Employees can organize their spending into a wide array of categories and receive alerts and guidance about areas of overspending. 

Plus, with the Best Money Moves savings tools, users can also break long-term goals into smaller, more actionalabe monthly savings. 

4. Address the specifics of financial stress by connecting employees to the guidance they need.

Providing employees with customized assistance to their finances can signal to employees that you’re listening to their needs. According to Morgan Stanley, 70% of employees say they’d be open to receiving personal financial support at work from a financial professional.

Best Money Moves offers high levels of customization and engagement, so your employees get the information, tools, solutions and products they need to live their best financial lives.
