The majority of employers are taking steps to help their employees save more for retirement. But they're not stopping there. Many also are trying to educate their workforces about all things finance. 

Findings from an Aon Hewitt survey indicate that 93 percent of employers are looking beyond their employees' retirement finances, with 46 percent "very likely" and 47 percent "somewhat likely" to augment existing plans with new features, mobile apps or online tools that can help them better understand financial concepts and financial planning

Of course, they're focused on retirement, too; 69 percent already offer online guidance on investments. That's up from 56 percent in 2014, and 18 percent of employers who haven't already taken this step are "very likely" to do so in 2015.
