Four Seasons Financial Education (FSFE), a provider of workplace financial wellness programs, today commented on a recent decision made by health insurance company, Aetna, to pay employees for adequate sleep. Aetna's CEO stated on CNBC's "Squawk Box" the company will pay an employee $25 if they can prove they've slept for seven hours or more a night for at least 20 nights in a row, with a maximum payment of $500 for the year.

"We applaud Aetna for their push for total well-being," says FSFE president, Travis Freeman. "Obviously Aetna understands the importance of employee wellness. We encourage all employers to focus on lowering stress for productivity purposes, including using financial wellness programs," says Freeman.
