    Learning Objective: How Personal Financial Stress is Negatively Impacting Your Company’s Bottom Line

    Why is it important to equip your employees with the financial knowledge they need to thrive? Research shows that many, if not most, of your employees are financially stressed, which fuels distractions in the workplace, stagnates productivity and ultimately depletes your bottom line.

    This type of personal overwhelm can and will:
    - Make it difficult for your employees to focus on the important tasks at hand.
    - Inflate unscheduled absences, costing you production time and money.
    - Chip away at employee morale, increasing your turnover and human resource expenditures.

    Simply put, what your employees don’t know can and is hurting you. Join Danijel Velicki, Founder and CEO of Sqwire and Insight Financial Academy, for a compelling dialogue focusing on how creative human resource managers and business owners are investing in employee education today to fuel profitability tomorrow.

    This is a hands-on workshop that will move beyond the statistics and directly into the education that will equip your employees’ long-term success and financial wellness. Explore some of the everyday concepts and key decisions that drive immediate positive change, and give yourself a gut check by reviewing your own personal finances as an example.

    Presentation Learning Objectives
    - Discuss the unique problem areas and complex financial challenges that employees encounter nationwide and the current gap between available information and actionable, personalized solutions.
    - Explore the overall financial impact that companies face as a result of individual employee financial stress, focusing on reported loss statistics as related to productivity, turnover, absenteeism and morale.
    - Review the return on investment for companies that proactively implement robust employee wellness programs that equip and empower employees to confidently achieve their financial goals.
    - Understand the basic financial education and key concepts that will help your employees regain control and confidence over their present finances and their future goals.
