Improve Your Company's Culture, Retention, & Engagement Levels with Financial Wellness

"My employees are like family and they are stressed about money! Which stresses me and effects our culture."

#1 Requested Benefit for Gen Z & Millennial Employees


Financial Wellness is a must-have for the future of work. Especially for those who are entering the workforce. If you want to equip your employees with the tools to budget, invest, or plan for the future, our Financial Wellness Programs are here for you!

John Hancock's Financial Stress Survey found:


69% of workers were stressed over their finances, and 

72% admitting to worrying about their personal finances at work.


Someone stressed about money simply can’t operate at their highest potential. 

According to Forbes, Financial Wellness is a must-have benefit for today's modern workforce. It is also the number one request from employees - especially those that are just entering the workforce. Many are riddled with student debt. Others are 23 and earning $80,000+ a year - with little control or discipline on how to budget, invest, or plan for their future. 



of Americans don't have
$1000 in emergency savings

Most Americans are 1-2 paychecks away from significant debt, bankruptcy, or even homelessness. This, often unknown, stress can lead to poor health, mental illness, and reduced capacity for creative problem solving.



of employees say financial stress interferes with work

Meaning you have team members missing work, are less focused and engaged, as well as less productive than non-financially stressed colleagues. It can easily lead to higher rates of turnover - costing you thousands each year.



of employees want financial wellness from their employer


According to a recent Forbes article, Financial Wellness is the #1 requested benefit by employees. Investing in your team's success can ignite the success of your company.

per employee/year 

It is estimated that financially stressed employees cost businesses $7,000/year in lost productivity, and with 35% of employees feeling financial stress, it is costing you.

Employee Financial Wellness Programs

Since graduating high school, how often have you had to use Pythagorean’s theorem? How often have you had to manage a budget – your own or for a project/business? Don’t you wish you had learned how to make smart financial decisions before you started earning money? Most people do.

School failed to teach us – and now businesses are feeling that consequence. It is estimated that 35% of the workforce is feeling financial stress and that it interferes with their work productivity. How is our team supposed to focus when they are worried about paying their bills and taking care of their children – especially during the Covid pandemic.

We know you have a lot on your plate trying to run and grow your business while striving for some semblance of work-life balance. We also know you care about your team, so do we – let us help engage and educate them. Let us help them build or rebuild their Financial Stability so they can get back to being their best.

How our Financial Wellness Programs works:


Access to our
financial coaches for individualized support


Quarterly reports on usage and an analysis on financial stress

Investing in our employees is the best thing I can do for them - and for my business. 

By showing them we care, they are better members of the team, and our retention rates have increased.

What Makes Us Different?


Money isn't logical, it's emotional!


While most workshops focus on the knowledge and skills around money, our workshops first focus on the individual and their emotions around money - then we can discuss the knowledge and skills.

Our workshops consist of emotional, behavioral, and habitual education that will help you and your employees make better choices.

Money is such a powerful part of the workforce. Not only does it drive why employees put in their beloved time and energy, but it’s the lifeblood of a business.


Managing cashflow, making choices and looking at the motivations for our decisions is a part of any business, but also every single household. So Financial Wellness can uplift both your business and your employees home life. 

Financial Stability Patch.png


We all know someone that has made choices and not realized what the consequences would be. For Gen Z and Millennials, this has become even easier in the realm of money because of digital currency, access to credit and predatory lending practices.

We’ll discuss the effect of our choices and the way our choices can improve or destroy our ability to handle the stress and unexpected life events financially.

We'll have some fun playing games - but with real meaning.

Goal Setting Patch.png


Setting Goals doesn't have to just relate to financial goals. We've built an awesome system for how to get a team all on the same page and working toward the same end point. 

Our team can help yours get rid of the noise, figure out what is important, and make a plan to go get it. 

Often, it's not about adding - it's about taking stuff away. Removing the complex  to get to the simple and most crucial - excelling your business growth and efficiency.

Assessment & Reporting

We know you want to know how it is going - we're happy to share!

We're a big fan of the old quote 'What gets measured gets managed.' But, it is important to remember that not everything that matters can be measured and not everything that we can measure matters.

That being said, our members get access to a number of self-assessment tools to help them determine where they are in the spectrum of Financial Stability.

'You have to know where you are before you can
figure out where you want to go' ~ Coach Josh

For you - we'll provide you with regular reports that show course activity as well as a quarterly snapshot of your team's Financial Stress Level. 

We've seen an average of 67% of employees feel more confident and less stressed, as a result of Ortus Academy's workshops and access to Money Club!
