Recap, Highlights, and Thoughts
We have talked about financial wellness on the podcast before, but not like this. My conversation today with Bill Harmon, President of Retirement Corporate Markets for Voya Financial illustrates how a thoughtful approach to financial wellness can help you become the employer of choice in your market and make a meaningful difference in the battle to attract and retain key talent. As you will hear, Bill shares a very personal and emotional story about how he found comfort in leaving his prior employer of nearly 30 years to join Voya in large part due to their approach in one key area of wellness. He also hits on a few other high value low cost wellness strategies for your consideration. Despite this being the most heartfelt episode I have done, there is a surprising amount of concrete and relevant data as well.
