Rank #2: Wealth Creation and Wellness with Om Suthar #009

Wealth Creation & Wellness with Om Suthar #009

Today, Nick Day of JGA HR Recruitment is joined on the HR L&D Podcast by Om Suthar, Founder of SQRL, a wellness and wealth creation platform that allows employers to advocate for the physical and financial wellness for their employees.

It is also a new way for employees to invest in their own physical and financial well-being in one-place using Om’s new Wellness and Wealth Creation platform, SQRL.  Om developed this wellness and wealth creation solution when he started to notice inconsistencies between employer, employee and healthcare benefits. These inconsistencies inspired him to found SQRL, a reaction to the current state of corporate wellness programs. Om wants to disrupt the industry with SQRL because he believes that employees should have access to products and education as a part of their overall financial wellbeing strategy.

If you are recruiting talent as a small business owner or an HR professional and you want to have benefits to attract the talent you deserve, you have two options: provide a wellness program or provide nothing. For candidates who are interested in workplace wellness, having such programs can be a deal-breaker.

Om is creating a third option for business owners and candidates alike with his app. He can really speak to the need for accessible wellness programs for candidates at all levels of their career search — as well as businesses at different stages.

In this “Wealth Creation and Wellness” episode of the HR L&D Podcast with Om Suthar we discover:

  1. What led Om to develop the SQRL app which is focused on improving wellness and wealth creation?
  2. How does SQRL help equip and inspire people to take their physical and financial health into their own hands.?
  3. Why should HR professionals be making wellness and wealth creation part of all companies’ cultures?
  4. The reasons why Om believes physical and emotional wellness, as well as wealth creation, should form part of an employer’s responsibility
  5. The psychology of motivation and Om’s findings
  6. What is the value of holistic wellness in terms of performance and mental health
  7. Will we start to see an increase in fitness or wellness apps that motivate its users through financial incentives.
  8. Why wellness is good for both Candidates and Employers alike?
