Aon's Global Financial Wellbeing Study 2018

Across the globe, employers are increasingly recognising that wellbeing is a critical component of their employees' – and their organisation's – ability to succeed.

At Aon, we generally see clients looking at wellbeing in four distinct areas:

  • Physical – so employees have the energy to achieve the tasks that are essential to their roles;
  • Emotional – encompassing an employees' ability to take a measured attitude to everyday tasks;
  • Social – which is derived from connections to others; and
  • Financial – recognising the ability for employees to confidently manage their finances, both currently and in the future.

Financial wellbeing is commonly defined as, "giving people the tools they need to handle their own financial decisions", however unfortunately it is not often that simple. Globally, there are a number of challenges in the area of financial wellbeing. Many individuals are grappling with various forms of debt, they do not have sufficient assets for retirement, and they face risks that an unexpected life event could create a major financial setback.

With unprecedented financial pressure on employees – alongside an increased awareness of the impact of unmanaged stress on employee productivity and engagement – it is time for employers to take action.
