Financial wellness at work programs are gaining popularity amid growing evidence that financial stress is a significant distraction in the workplace. Recognizing that such programs are most effective when they are offered through a medium with which employees feel comfortable, D2D developed the first ever financial wellness at work video game. "Staples Farm Blitz" utilizes Financial Entertainment to reduce the stress associated with financial education, maximize engagement among employees, and bypass challenges to implementation and effectiveness that discourage employers from offering financial wellness programs.
