For over a decade Willis Towers Watson has surveyed employees about health and retirement. This year’s survey fielded in 19 countries from June to August 2015 and is the second globally consistent survey.

Survey highlights

  1. Employees’ financial situation is improving but long-term financial worries linger. They feel vulnerable, want security and are willing to pay for it.
  2. Employees’ issues are multi-faceted: health, financial and engagement issues tend to cluster.
  3. Health and financial issues affect business results through a drag on productivity.
  4. Weak engagement on health and financial issues is strongly linked to broader work experience.
  5. Employees are in favor of employers taking an active role in their health and in retirement saving, but are less certain on financial issues. Employers need to build brand permission first.
