National Savings Forum Featured Panel: Workplace Savings
Workplace savings has been a focus of America Saves since the launch of the campaign over ten years ago. There are compelling reasons for this.
Research from a variety of sources as well as information from individual savers shows that employers who offer direct deposit and facilitate automatic savings substantially improve the financial health and well being of their employees. This panel will explore how employers are supporting successful saving with products and services that assist workplace saving for non-retirement goals, and promising innovations that provide the opportunity for young workers to create a life-long habit of saving in the workplace.
