Financial Wellness in the Workplace

“Money worries are the greatest source of stress – more than work, personal health, and relationships”
Government of Canada

This is not surprising, considering Canadians now owe about $1.79 for each dollar of disposable income!


Money stresses in the workplace include

  • Managing household bills
  • Dealing with high levels of debt
  • Living paycheque-to-paycheque
  • Struggling to save
  • Dealing with unexpected expenses
  • Dealing with an uncertain future/retirement

As a result...

  • Workers are twice as likely to report poor overall health
  •  4x more likely to suffer from sleep issues, headaches, and other illnesses
  • More likely to experience strain in personal relationships

Even more serious effects...

  • Mental health, such as anxiety and depression
  • Physical health such as heart disease and high blood pressure

The Cost of Lost Productivity at Work 

  • Increased sick days
  • Distraction at work resulting in less engagement, and thus, lower productivity
  • Can result in 16% less productivity in general

The financial cost can be as much as $8,000 per year per employee*

* If an employee is earning $50,000 per year, poor financial wellness can add up to as much as $50,000 x 16% = $8,000 per year per employee

“Almost 50% of working Canadians admit that stress related to personal finances has had an impact on their performance at work"
