The Rise of Emergency Savings Programs: What Every Employer Should Know

The savings crisis in the United States is urgent: More than half of Americans can’t afford an unexpected $1,000 expense. While it can be difficult for employers to know how their own workforce is faring  – especially since many Americans are reluctant to talk about finances – research shows that workers want help from their employers to build savings. With employee financial stress and 401(k) loans on the rise, many companies are turning to a new solution to boost worker well-being and retention: emergency savings programs.Join Financial Health Network President and CEO Jennifer Tescher for a revealing conversation with personal finance expert and SecureSave Co-Founder Suze Orman on what employers need to know about emergency savings accounts.Employers who have launched an emergency savings program will also join the conversation to discuss how and why they implemented this benefit to their workforce.Throughout this webinar, the panelists will explore:

  • The biggest financial challenges facing workers today – and how they differ from the headlines about the economy
  • Why emergency savings programs –a relatively new benefit in the space – are quickly becoming a priority for employers
  • How to design, fund, and launch an emergency savings program that drives positive savings habits and business outcomes
