Workplace financial literacy
“We know that worries about personal finances are at the top of the list when Canadians talk about excessive stress. And as each of us know only too well, stress isn’t something you can tuck away in a drawer or leave at home. It comes with us to work where it can be a distraction that affects employee work performance and leads to absenteeism.” – Jane Rooney, Canada’s Financial Literacy Leader.
Workplaces that offer financial education are directly helping their employees cope with a major source of stress, leading to happier and more productive employees.
