Financial insecurity is a national problem affecting workers across the country. This insecurity affects you as individual worker performance and morale suffer in turn. Young, lower-income workers, are especially vulnerable and need support to develop their finances. This session will discuss the connection between financial insecurity and the workplace, the financial issues young, lower-income workers grapple with, and strategies you can consider to help this developing worker group. In this session, you will:

  • Learn what financial issues young, low- and moderate-income (LMI) workers are grappling with today.
  • Explore ways you can support the financial wellness of your young, LMI employees.
  • Identify where to learn more about workplace-based financial wellness services.
