From the abstract:
Employers of all sizes need to make financial wellness a priority in 2015. Over the past couple years, we have seen some really inspiring trends in the areas of physical and mental health. Companies are implementing healthy eating initiatives, allowing fitness breaks, and offering 24-hour mental health hotlines. These programs are gaining popularity as more organizations realize that healthy employees are happier, more productive, and cost less. The remaining and possibly most costly concern is their financial wellness. Both employees and employers realize gains when financial stress is reduced.
