Thanks to the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants’ (TSCPA) workplace financial education program, you can get FREE financial literacy resources for your workplace.
Whether you’re the company president or a human resources or communications professional, bring these free personal finance resources into your office and share them with your employees.
The World Health Organization calls stress “the health epidemic of the 21st century.” In two recent surveys, HR professionals indicated financial worries continue to contribute to employee stress on the job (MetLife) and 83% said that personal financial challenges had a large impact or some impact on overall employee performance (SHRM). Workplace stress is estimated to cost American businesses up to $300 billion a year (ComPsych). With all of these statistics, how can you afford not to take advantage of this workplace financial education program?
