    Mental and Financial Wellness Often Overlooked
    Employee Benefit News
    Wellness is a concept many of us are familiar with. It is often a primary topic for speakers at human resources conferences, written about in the media, and discussed between employers and employees.

It's useful to zoom out and define wellness in a much broader way to include not only an employee's physical health, but also their mental/emotional and financial well-being. After all, these three dimensions of wellness are clearly intertwined, particularly in the minds of employees.

The group has been called lazy, entitled, and spoiled — but at the same time the generation has also been heralded for its collective innovation and desire to work for something other than money. While America may still not know quite how to pin down the drive and desires of this generation, it does seem that their views on jobs and careers differ from their Boomer parents and the Gen Xers who came just before them.
