Highland Park, MI (PRWEB) July 26, 2009
Budco, a leading fulfillment and direct marketing company, is offering employees the opportunity to enroll in Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University at no cost. Ramsey, the popular financial advisor, radio, and television personality, created Financial Peace University to help people change the way they think about personal finance and become debt free.
"This is all about continuing to support our workforce in relevant ways," said Annette Watts, vice president of Human Resources and Training and Development at Budco. "With the challenging economy and stress that can come from worries over personal finance, we are confident the Financial Peace lessons will be of great benefit to our staff."
The 12-week course deals with different topics, such as how to save money, live on a budget, communicate about money, eliminate debt, find bargains, and plan for retirement.
All Budco employees are eligible to participate in the program and can include their spouse or an immediate family member. Lessons are taught after work on-site at Budco's headquarters. The only commitment expected of employees is to attend at least 10 of the 12 lessons. As long as that commitment is met, the company covers the entire cost of the training.
Some industry surveys say that as high as 40% of the workforce admits that stress over money and personal finances affects their productivity.
"If we can help educate our workforce and ease some of the stress in their lives, that's great. If, as an added benefit, this makes people more productive at work, then ultimately we are positively affecting our customer as well, and that is critical to our long term success," said Watts.
