More often than not, employees advocate for Group RRSPs in their workplace. What sometimes gets ignored is that employers can benefit as well. By offering Group RRSPs, employers can significantly lower the financial stress on employees. Thus, having a positive impact on their happiness, confidence, and overall work performance.

Improve Employee Attraction & Retention
Attract top talent and retain star employees by offering financial wellness. According to a survey conducted on behalf of the Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan, most Canadian employers believe providing workplace retirement savings plans can improve employee attraction and retention. The survey polled Canadian employers and found 88% of those that offer a defined plan said it was “extremely important” or “very important” to their employee retention efforts.*

Increase Productivity
In the same survey, almost half of employers offering retirement benefits said employee productivity has been better than normal over the past year, compared to 29% of employers that don’t offer retirement benefits. 73% of employers said employees feeling financial stress are less productive. **

Group Retirement Savings Plans help eliminate financial stress allowing employees to focus more time on day-to-day responsibilities and less time stressed about their financial future.
