As the global financial crisis continues, smart businesses will do what they can to help address their employees' financial stress. Increased costs for basic necessities -- food, fuel, health care, housing -- are stretching families to the limit. Studies show that employee financial problems result in lower job productivity, increased absenteeism, increased substance abuse, and high turnover - all of which impact a company's profitability.
Learn the warning signs of employee financial stress, low-cost local and national resources your business can tap, and strategies used by leading entrepreneurial employer Ryla such as their paper free payroll system, "cashless cafe," and financial education workshops.
Presenters will include Janet Raffel from JE Raffel & Associates, Karen Clay from Ryla, Alison Yonas from Latino Community Credit Union, Larrey Riddle from MACED and moderator Anne Claire Broughton from SJF Advisory Services.
