The survey released Friday by Boston-based Fidelity Investments and Washington-based National Business Group on Health showed that employers are focused not only on promoting workers' physical health at work, but also mental and financial health.

“Social factors and one's environment play an important role in employee engagement and in one's view of their overall well-being,” NBGH CEO and President Brian Marcotte said in the statement announcing the survey results. “We are seeing more companies step up their efforts to integrate financial and emotional well-being, social connectedness and job satisfaction with their more traditional efforts to support physical health.”
