St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
Corporate financial wellness firm, Four Seasons Financial Education (FSFE), today named two professions which consistantly lag their peers at focusing on long-term financial goals - sales professionals and legal professionals. According to FSFE, these professionals are most likely to focus on heavy work loads and hefty sales goals than their own personal finances.
"We've worked with hundreds of organizations in numerous industries and consistently find these professionals are more focused on their career goals than their financial goals," says Danton Troyer, one of the firms CFP professionals. "Most of them make a good living, but the last thing they want to do after a stressful week is analyze their finances. Losing time is not good when it comes to your goals," he says.
FSFE further cited that this focus on career versus self can cost employers over time. As employees postpone planning for retirement, for example, they often find themselves working at a company longer than anticipated. This delayed retirement often means an employee is working because they have to work, not because they want to work. This can mean higher payroll costs, higher health care cost, and lower productivity for employers. FSFE also named engineers among the professionals with the best financial habits.
