Employee hardship funds — a little-known mechanism to help workers who experience a disaster-related or personal financial hardship — warrant more attention. The way that most of these funds work is that workers and the company contribute into a fund, and workers can then apply for cash grants from the fund. Hardship funds generally try to help employees when disasters strike, or other unexpected events occur.
Join the Aspen Institute Financial Security Program (Aspen FSP) and Commonwealth for a webinar research briefing on their new report, Illuminating a Hidden Safety Net. They will share their findings, provide insights into operational best practices, and explore implications for larger employer-based financial wellness offerings. Plus, hear from Joe Flynn, President of the HCA Healthcare Hope Fund, on why HCA values their hardship fund. There will also be ample opportunity for question and answer with the researchers.
