It’s no secret, people are stressed about money. Even as the economy recovers, 70% of families are living check to check. As an HR professional, you want to help but you need a plan, a business case and internal support. In this session, I will help you build your strategy for handling financial stress in the workplace including:

• How to measure (and report) impact
 
This interactive session is about helping you understand and evaluate the financial wellness landscape in a way that matches your needs, objectives and constraints.
