Growing A Financially Resilient Workforce With Spring
Spring is excited to announce the launch of its digital financial education platform. An incentivised platform designed to build the financial resilience of your workplace and increase your team’s productivity, engagement and retention.
The current financial health of New Zealanders is alarming, with the financial impact of COVID-19 exacerbating this issue. 608,000 New Zealand households live in financial hardship, with 715,000 additional households at risk of tipping into hardship.
Given this dynamic, it’s no wonder that financial stress is one of the leading forms of workplace stress. 83% of employers say that money problems impact employee productivity. With 20 hours lost per employee per month sorting out personal financial worries.
Employers have an opportunity to change these statistics. Spring empowers employers to go beyond the paycheck. Through their gamified digital financial education platform, employees are motivated to grow their financial knowledge and can connect with the wider ecosystem of financial help, such as Fincap. By providing Spring’s digital financial education programme in your workplace, you have an opportunity to free your employees from their biggest source of stress. With decreased stress, employees are more engaged, more productive and have a higher rate of retention.
Investing in workplace wellbeing isn’t a matter of if, but a matter of when and how. If you’re not investing in wellbeing, you’re missing out on money. New figures from the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research (NZIER) have found that for every dollar you spend on staff wellbeing, you will earn an average of $5 back on your investment within a year — money that is otherwise lost to poor productivity. In fact, this return on investment can go as high as 12:1 — or $12 back for every dollar spent on wellbeing.
