Providing financial education lowers rates of absenteeism and turnover.

The number one problem in today’s generation and economy is the lack of financial literacy. Alan Greenspan

Financial stress is a major concern for many employees and by extension is a serious issue for employers.

An effective solution is to provide comprehensive financial education in the workplace to combat personal anxieties that can impact employee performance. For instance, many employees do not have an estate plan, or have not fully considered their options for long-term health care, and employees are asking for help.

According to an award-winning study, cited by the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, company profits increased by $450 annually for each employee who even slightly improved his or her financial behaviors. As employees learn a path to personal financial stability, they become more focused and present on the job.

The Oregon Financial Education Network (OFEN) is a Portland, OR non-profit speakers bureau featuring dynamic, creative speakers who donate their time to providing companies and organizations with free financial education as an employee benefit. Because individual education of sound financial principles is our sole purpose, workshops are not sales events and no products or companies are endorsed or mentioned during classes.

Classes are scheduled as a series, and HR professionals can offer a free and unique employee benefit, featuring classes like:

  •     Estate planning
  •     Getting Fiscally Fit
  •     Real Estate: Buying and Selling Strategies
  •     Long-Term Health Care
  •     How to Invest in Real Estate
  •     Retirement: First Class or Coach

To provide these classes at your organization, get detailed information or download a press kit, please visit or call 503-836-7922
