On February 26, 2016, Financial Fitness Group’s founder Joe Saari joined CA State Senator Ben Hueso, National City Mayor Ron Morrison, Miguel Vasquez, Founder & CEO of the California Foundation Fund, and Chris Bryant, CEO of the San Diego Employers Association as a panelist to discuss how employers can help employees improve their financial literacy and improve productivity. The overall event, “Financial Wellness at Work Challenge”, was designed to bring the experience and insights of industry experts to employers, human resource specialists, and financial professionals as they tackle the difficult challenge of improving employees’ financial capability and reducing the cost of employees’ financial stress.

Over the past several years, improving employees’ financial wellness has become an important issue for employers, in particular in the aftermath of the Great Recession. Most families live paycheck to paycheck, leaving them feeling stressed and financially insecure.  This stress carries over into the workplace, resulting in absenteeism, distracted work, lost productivity, and increased healthcare costs. The panel focused on discussing these issues and presenting employers with practical and cost-effective solutions that can improve employees’ financial capability and thereby reduce financial stress and improve productivity and the employer’s bottom line.

Recognized as a thought leader in the financial literacy community, Joe was able to provide employers and financial services attendees with his unique insights including data collected from Financial Fitness Group’s six years of providing effective financial education in the workplace. Analyzed data came from work with over 900 employers and almost 100,000 employees. With nearly 20 years of financial education and publishing experience, Joe is a frequent speaker at events and conferences around the country. He has been featured on CNBC, CNN, and Bloomberg and has spoken at 100s of industry conferences and educational events.
