2020 Economic Update - December 2020

With the shock of the pandemic behind us, the world has settled into a new reality: living with COVID. The crisis is certainly not over, and most parts of the world are seeing cases rising once again. The global, Canadian, and Alberta economies are struggling under massive uncertainty. What possible scenarios could play out? And what if adjusting to a new reality -- rather than returning to life as normal -- turns out to be easier than we think?

The Future of Workplace Plans: More Than Just Saving for Retirement    

We know there is a need for greater financial help for Canadians. Expanding workplace programs to offer solutions around student debt, cashflow management, credit counselling, and saving for your children’s education will help an employer add value to their existing pension and benefits program, and differentiate themselves in a highly competitive talent market.

Join a discussion in what the future of workplace savings and wealth programs can look like, by addressing very real problems with very non-traditional workplace solutions.

Financial Wellness for the Ages: Many Generations, One Common Thread       

It’s a fact that when it comes to personal finances, our age dictates much about what we want to know. For example, someone new to the job is probably less interested in retirement planning than someone who already has their last day of work marked in the calendar. However, emerging trends have started to show us that the new hire and the seasoned veteran have a lot more in common than you would think: both can benefit from trends in communication – like the prominence of mobile devices, authenticity in communications, and the growing study of behavioural economics – to enhance their knowledge and ability to make sound financial decisions.

Redefining The Narrative of Older Workers

Life expectancy is increasing at a pace that may sustain beyond the actual age of retirement, and some people will not be ready to retire until an advanced aged. In addition, today even if recruiting all of the young people out of school, we will still have a shortage of workers. 

What does this mean for employers and extended benefits providers?  Older workers will stay longer at work. Knowledge retention and loyalty are a plus, but multiple complexities may be present as well. Some of these workers will require support that is likely going to come through the employer’s support directly or through an extended benefits provider, to be able to continue working.
