American workers are feeling optimistic about their physical and financial health, and they see the two as connected, new research shows.
So reports Principal Financial Group in its latest Principal Financial Well-Being Index. The online survey of American workers, conducted by Harris Poll, gathered responses from 1,110 U.S. employees in February. The report is one in a series of quarterly studies to identify and track changes in the workplace of small and mid-sized (growing) businesses.
According to the report, only 4 percent of workers rate themselves as physically unhealthy. And over half of workers (52 percent) believe they are making good progress toward their long-term financial goals.
