Money problems have become the biggest contributor to personal stress and it has started to affect productivity in the workplace. This is likely related to the fact that consumer debt and bankruptcy has grown to record levels and savings rates are non-existent. Couple these statistics with the reality that there is very little formal financial education provided in our country and you can’t help but recognize a very serious concern in our society and most people will end up having to contact a bankruptcy attorney for some assistance to see what their options are once they hit or are about to reach rock bottom.
Employers need to rethink employee benefit plans and incorporate Financial Education as an essential part of those benefit plans. Most group retirement plans focus solely on product and plan education. Innovative companies are now incorporating health and wealth management services into their benefit programs, but generally, there is still a void in Financial Education.
“We make employers look good by delivering top quality financial education programs that employees rave about!”
There is a tremendous amount of research confirming that when you improve the financial literacy for the employee, it brings tangible benefits to both the employers and employees. Financial Education should be at the core of any financial benefit plan. Aligning the employer, employee, and the benefit plan is essential for the financial and professional success of your organization.
There is a massive appetite for Financial Education especially given the demographics.
Employees will appreciate employers who help them take control of their money not only through traditional benefit plans but also through financial knowledge and education.
Financial Education starts by helping employees understand how their employee benefit program is a key component in their financial affairs. A great plan will also show that true financial success comes from understanding more than just the benefit program from work. Financial Education helps employees achieve financial success by harmonizing their benefit plans at work and in their personal financial affairs.
People are not learning about money properly and unfortunately, more and more financial responsibility is being shifted to the employee. Leading edge-employers are taking the lead in helping their employees learn to make better financial decisions. They are now playing a bigger role in building awareness and educating their employees on fiscal wellness, retirement, and investment planning.
Our programs are unique and exceptional
When you think of a financial education program, what do you think of? Most financial education is run by people who are either trying to sell you a mutual fund, investment or insurance. If not, they are probably representatives who works for a specific company, teaching you about the plan or the products offered by the plan. Not us, we are truly unique and exceptional in 3 ways:
- CONTENT – Our content is truly educational. We know that the only way to really help employees is to give them a program that is holistic and comprehensive.
- DELIVERY – Most financial education programs are run by financial advisors or financial people who may know a thing or to about personal finance but they may not know how to teach. Our workshops are unique because they are really fun. We know that the best way to get people to learn is to give them content that is engaging, interactive and fun. People really do rave about our workshops . . . that are nothing like other workshop you may have attended.
- OBJECTIVE – Because we do not sell or pitch financial products, we do not have the same conflict of interest that can be present if we are compensated by selling something. We aim to provide education without that conflict of interest.
