“Financial wellness programs can help employees find balance and control over their lives, allowing them to be focused and engaged as well as productive."
Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) July 26, 2016
hubbub health, a corporate wellness technology company that offers an integrated platform of evidenced-based wellbeing solutions, has expanded its wellness suite to offer financial wellness content and support to its nearly 95,000 users.
hubbub, currently offered online and through iPhone and Droid apps, works with employers to provide employees with health and wellness tools to encourage gradual and realistic health changes, such as eating better, moving more, and balancing stress demands. Now, with a new emphasis on financial wellbeing, hubbub will also offer employees the opportunity to “prosper” by joining fun and effective challenges that help players develop the right habits to help minimize financial burdens.
“In this day and age, many are worried about paying their bills, which impedes them from being focused on improving their wellbeing,” says hubbub’s Chief Operating Officer Winston Ball. He adds, “Financial wellness programs can help employees find balance and control over their lives, allowing them to be focused and engaged as well as productive. We’re very excited to offer this new module because our goal is to meet people where they’re at when it comes to helping them improve their wellbeing.”
Achieving financial health is a struggle for many employees that often leads to a loss of productivity in the workplace. According to an Employee Financial Wellness Survey administered by PricewaterhouseCoopers, 52% of employees claim to be stressed about their finances. In addition, 45% of employees identify financial troubles as the leading cause of stress in their lives. The addition of a “prosper” challenge category to hubbub’s platform is intended to help users reach their financial health goals, such as tackling debt, student loans and even plan for retirement.
hubbub will offer recurring financial wellness challenges 24/7 to sponsored employees as part of the newly launched Prosper wellbeing category.
