Established in 2017, the Workforce Financial Stability Initiative (WFSI) seeks to understand how frontline employees’ work conditions affect their financial stability and to identify and test workplace innovations to improve these conditions. The WFSI grew out of the Employee Financial Wellness Programs (EFWP) Project, a multi-year effort studying the implementation and outcomes of financial wellness programs in the workplace.
Additional focus areas include:
- Gig worker financial stability
- Employee stock ownership plans
- Employer-supported student loan repayment
