HUNTINGTON, WV — Give employees the best gift of all this holiday season — peace of mind.

 

Many employees struggle with household budget management, healthcare costs, lack of savings, debt management and lack of retirement plans.

 

Financially Fit in the River Cities, a program of United Way of the River Cities’ Financial $tability PartnershipTM of the River Cities (FSPTM), can offer employees with subjects such as budgeting, saving, investing, 401k, debt management, opening a bank account, tax issues, major purchases and more, including the following:

  • Lunch and Learn sessions
  • Day-long training
  • After-hours training
  • One-on-one training coaching and/or follow-ups

 

Training can be tailored to suit the needs of employers and employees.

 

“The holidays can be a stressful time for anyone in the workplace,” said Ed Davis, FSPTM coordinator. “This program can offer an array of financial options for individuals and companies that will allow them to feel more comfortable with their finances during the holiday season and all year long. We encourage companies to take advantage of this opportunity. Employers should offer personal financial training because those concerns are costing companies money.”

 

Financially Fit will help to establish a financial information center at a company’s location. FSPTM will provide materials and information that employees can access any time they have questions.

 

A study performed by Met Life and the Boston College Center for Work and Family found that financial distress may directly impact the health of employees, which can reduce productivity and increase absenteeism.  Providing financial education can reduce that stress, reduce absenteeism and increase both productivity and workplace loyalty.
