Pennsylvania surveying fin ed at workplace
HARRISBURG, Pa. (1/9/08)--Pennsylvania's Office of Financial Education is surveying workplaces in the state to learn more about employers offering financial education. The results will also help the office act as a resource for businesses that want to get information about financial education or start their own program, according to the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (Life is a Highway Jan. 8). According to Secretary of Banking Steve Kaplan, businesses in the state could achieve higher productivity, lower health care costs, and reduced absenteeism by providing financial education for their employees. "Money problems at home can have a negative effect on an employee's work performance and that affects the company's bottom line," said Kaplan. "By investing in financial education, businesses can help foster a healthier and more productive workforce." The survey is available until March 14 at www.moneysbestfriend.com. Many Pennsylvania credit unions offer financial education to members and conduct public seminars on financial education topics.
