Employer Spotlight: Eastern Virginia Medical School 

In our sixth annual “Inside the Wallets of Working Americans” report in collaboration with HR Dive, it was found 74% of employees find themselves living paycheck to paycheck, grappling with the constant challenge of making ends meet. This financial strain not only affects their day-to-day lives but also impacts their overall well-being and productivity at work. Recognizing this reality, employers have a crucial role to play in supporting their employees’ financial health. 

In response to the financial challenges faced by their workforce, Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) recognized the pressing need to support their employees’ financial well-being. With an increasing number of staff turning to retirement loans and hardship withdrawals, EVMS sought a proactive solution to alleviate financial stress and promote stability among its employees.

“I have been at EVMS for over two decades, FinFit is the only benefit that we have where I have never fielded a complaint or received negative feedback.”

-Aimee Bader, Senior Assistant Director HR at EVMS

In the face of economic uncertainty, investing in employee financial wellness not only benefits individuals but also strengthens organizations by enhancing employee morale, engagement, and retention. As employers, like Eastern Virginia Medical School, prioritize the holistic well-being of their workforce, they pave the way for a more resilient and prosperous future for employees and their organizations.
