BT Financial Group has announced the inclusion of a wellbeing program to its superannuation offerings.
The program will focus on six key aspects of wellbeing - financial, health, family, community, workplace and values in a bid to change the way Australians feel about their superannuation.
BT will provide the financial wellbeing input into the program, having already developed Wealth Review, an interactive program that Australians can use to get an immediate picture of all of their financial affairs.
BT will build on Westpac's current wellbeing program that services over 40,000 employees to develop wellbeing programs that are meaningful for employers and employees. BT and Westpac's existing member programs have a focus on family and community, with the new program looking to provide a holistic approach to wellbeing.
Commenting on the new program, general manager of superannuation, BT Financial Group, Melinda Howes said, "Our intention is to take super in a new direction, to change how Australians feel about their super from something a long way in the future to something that benefits them now."
"Super provides for our future wellbeing and this is very powerful when aligned with initiatives that address our current wellbeing, including physical and mental health. Companies want fitter, happier and more engaged employees. Many of our super members also want to be healthier, more balanced and need help sorting out their finances."
"We want to take this approach to all Australians, drawing on Westpac's experience as a leading employer and BT Financial Group's expertise in wealth management and super," said Howes.
