When it comes to saving and investing for the future, Canadians are looking for help. Research from Manulife and Ipsos Reid indicates that, on average, one in every three Canadian employees could be struggling with their finances.
For companies looking to help their employees plan for their retirement and promote good financial health, the message is clear: despite best efforts, many employees are feeling insecure about their finances, and they’re failing to make the most of their group savings plans. What employees want is a more personalized approach towards financial planning and they’re looking to their employers for help.
