On the other hand, financially unprepared employees take 25% more sick days than their more prepared counterparts and are twice as likely to be distracted and unfocused while at work.According to the survey, employees with both a workplace benefits plan and a retirement savings plan were more than 50% more likely to report feeling financially prepared than those without such plans.While pensions and benefits are just part of the equation when it comes to helping employees get their financial ducks in a row, they are relatively simple to implement within an organization compared to more nebulous engagement improving projects such as improving feedback or introducing a mentoring project.
