"Will financial wellness ever be as ubiquitous as healthcare? "

To some, this question might conjure up images of a far away future, in workplaces that look much different than they do today.

But Karlos Guerra, Benefits Consultant at Lockton Companies, has already witnessed this emerging benefit gain a ton of traction. For him, a world where companies prioritize employee financial wellbeing as much as physical and mental wellbeing isn't far off at all.

Karlos works with some of the most innovative Silicon Valley mid-size companies where he connects their objectives to strategic employee benefits action plans.

Workplace wellbeing has a "ripple effect", he says, and employers are uniquely positioned to be a positive force in their employees lives and for the economy as a whole.
