Helping with Your Employees Debt… Opportunity or Over Stepping?
Guest: Meghan Murphy
With the podcast well into its second year and now with over seventy original episodes, its been fun to have some of our prior guests rejoin us to discuss new topics to help employers! Meghan Murphy, a Director of Thought Leadership at Fidelity Investments was on the podcast earlier this year sharing her “Four Workplace Retirement Trends Too Big To Ignore in 2017”, if you haven’t checked that out it was a good one and sets up our conversation today on employee debt and how employers are looking to lend a helping hand! As you will hear, debt impacts the ability for your employees to save for retirement, pursue other financial goals as wells productivity and their physical health! You might be surprised to hear that based on Fidelity research, there are multiple generations and income levels that struggle with debt which might reframe some of your prior perceptions. Probably most important though, Meghan shares a few ideas for employers who want to explore helping their employees manage, pay down and avoid future challenges with debt.
