“Financial wellness programs can support employees in managing their budget needs, debt and even retirement planning,” said Aditi Sharma Kalra, regional editor of Human Resources magazine.
“If companies want to stay ahead of the pack, then they need to run programs that enhance the emotional, mental and physical well-being of their people who keep the bottom line pumping.”
