Shelton, CT (PRWEB) December 9, 2008
There's good news for employers who want to help workers better manage their financial challenges: LifeCare®, Inc., a leading provider of health and productivity solutions for employers nationwide, will give them free access to its Financial Resource Center, a web site created exclusively to deliver information and resources that address credit, debt, home purchases and sales, foreclosures, tenant eviction, investment, retirement planning, taxes, bankruptcy and much more. The multimedia site contains a variety of articles, guides, webinars, podcasts, videos, calculators and other helpful tools.
Organizations interested in offering the Financial Resource Center to their employees must complete a brief form that is available online at: http://www.lifecare.com/freeoffer/. (This form must be submitted by an authorized representative of the organization's Human Resources department.) Once an organization is enrolled, its employees will have free access to the site for three months. Employees will be able to log on 24/7 to:
- Learn about managing credit and debt, budgeting and saving, bankruptcy, wills, estates and trusts, etc.
- Calculate loan rates, savings rates, investment yields, present and future values and much more with dozens of financial calculators.
- Listen to money management podcasts by Jean Chatzky, award-winning journalist and nationally recognized financial expert.
- Save money by shopping online via LifeCare's Discount Center, which gives people access to hundreds of deals on a wide variety of products and services.
- Even learn stress management techniques.
In announcing this initiative, LifeCare CEO, Peter G. Burki, said, "Employers everywhere are being forced to limit benefits and reduce expenses while, at the same time, their employees are in greater need of sound financial guidance. The Financial Resource Center is our way of addressing the needs of both groups. Employers can offer a timely and helpful set of resources to employees without spending a penny, and employees can get the tools and information they need to better manage their finances. Basically, we want to help employers give workers the peace of mind they need to focus effectively on their jobs and the needs of their families. That's been our mission for the past 24 years and it's needed today more than ever."
