Sequoia Consulting Group
Shannon Arens is a Wellbeing Consultant at Sequoia Consulting Group. Shannon partners with enterprise clients to develop or build upon their employee wellbeing strategy. By focusing on the four pillars of wellbeing: physical, emotional, family, and financial, she helps to identify gaps, assess the vendor landscape and maximize engagement.
Employee needs are diverse and not a one-size-fits-all. Employers will do well to listen to employees and not assume they know what they need. But also, not all concerns are voiced by employees, so still important to listen to the trends.
Financial well-being, help with decisions (health plans, employee stock, preparing for an IPO, etc.). Mental well-being for the employee and their family.
From what I know from clients: out-of-network mental health costs.
Top of mind for clients is financial wellbeing, decisions around returning to the office, and continue mental health and family support.
