Here’s why South African employers have started taking employee financial wellness solutions as a critical area that needs urgent attention and effective interventions:

  • Presenteeism alone costs SA employers above R 89 Billion per annum, combined with absenteeism the figure borders around R 130 Billion
  • After personal problems, which could literally mean anything including health and domestic problems, financial distress is the second biggest contributor to presenteeism in the workplace
  • Using the South African average day rate of R 405, it is estimated that employers are losing an average R596 566 per 100 employees per annum due to presenteeism. The results show that, on average, 27% of employees go to work but don’t always work effectively because they are distracted at some point.
