Does your employer offer financial education as a workplace employee program?
The research paper Weighing The Effects Of Financial Education In The Workplace illustrates a link between improved personal financial behavior and workplace productivity outcomes.
Alisdair Barr from financial education employee program provider Future Map says ‘financial education can be delivered in a fun engaging way as a team to benefit you as an individual, as well as benefitting your family, community and the workplace. Financially comfortable employees make better financial decisions at home and for the business.’
‘Just like the 10thousandgirl financial literacy programs, the actions employees take after participating in the Future Map workplace financial wellbeing programs are inspiring and have broad and long term positive impacts’, says Alisdair.
