For its efforts to support holistic associate well-being, Bread Financial™’s LivingWell program recently won a Ragan Workplace Wellness Award, which celebrates the organizations, people and teams that have made significant strides in improving their employees' health and well-being, with a focus on physical, mental, financial and social wellness.

Chosen from a large pool of applicants, LivingWell was named the overall winner in the Financial Wellness category. LivingWell, which provides a variety of low to no-cost tools, resources and support to help Bread Financial associates and their families feel balanced, energized and optimistic about their personal journeys, recognizes financial confidence as a critical piece of total well-being.

“I’m thrilled to be recognized by an industry-leader like Ragan, as this award highlights the tremendous strides we’ve made to help our associates feel more confident about their finances,” said Lindsay Madaras, senior manager of associate well-being, Bread Financial. “Money can be a significant source of stress, so we provide a variety of no-cost resources to help associates reach their personal financial goals. We do this through benefits such as BrightPlan, a financial wellness solution that provides unlimited access to a financial planner, on-demand education, coaching and advice, and monthly “Dollars & Sense” workshops that cover important topics like budgeting, managing debt and improving credit scores.”
