It's a wise choice in any economy, but businesses can't afford to ignore it in a bad one.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Travis Freeman, President of Four Seasons Financial Education has recently published a book titled, Make Your Money Work. This book is aimed at bringing greater attention to the world of workplace financial education and to show businesses how they can begin using education programs to drive performance.
A 2012 survey by the National Endowment for Financial Education found that 4 in 10 people have had their benefits cuts during the recession. About 53 percent of those polled said they are unhappy with their salary, benefits or hours, but are staying in their current job, at least for now. Employers that are experiencing decreased morale, decreased productivity, and increased workplace stress are now seeking low-cost benefits that may curb these recent trends.
“I wrote this book because I care about the message and know that businesses have the potential to increase workplace performance based on its ideas,” Says Freeman. “Many large organizations are now pushing wellness initiatives to manage costs and increase employee health. Financial wellness is meant to provide the same outcome and benefits to both the employee and employer. It’s a wise choice in any economy, but businesses can’t afford to ignore it in a bad one.”
