Webinar: Tools for Strengthening Public Sector Employee Financial Wellness
As public sector workers report increased financial concerns with the rise of inflation and stock market volatility, helping state and local government workers achieve financial security is more important than ever. This webinar will present research describing the financial wellness needs and preferences of public sector employees, review the business case for employee financial wellness programs, and highlight a series of financial wellness fact sheets and case studies of approaches employers are taking to implement and strengthen employee financial wellness. These resources will offer public sector HR professionals with key learnings and promising practices to help their workers achieve their financial goals, such as reducing debt, saving for retirement, and increasing emergency savings. These tools can provide employers with a competitive advantage as they work to attract and retain talented employees and the next generation of the public sector workforce.
