ADDRESSING FINANCIAL WELLBEING ACROSS THE INTERGENERATIONAL WORKFORCE
This panel features experts in financial wellness in conversation with workplace wellbeing leaders, exploring barriers and fresh ideas for redefining financial wellness in our current climate. The workplace has been forever disrupted by the global pandemic, and the impacts of inflation and the housing crisis across the US are being felt by workers and employers. Economic insecurity is widespread and increasing. About four of every 10 economically insecure adults are working regularly—most of them full time and year-round—but not earning enough to make ends meet. Low wages and/or limited hours prevent them from moving out of economic insecurity (PolicyLink, 2018). Additionally, the needs of our intergenerational workforce vary widely and employers need to be aware of those needs.
