Educational Webinars

Credit Counseling Center offers Educational Webinars (and live seminars during non-COVID times) that teach different aspects of financial literacy. These are suitable for workplaces, civic organizations, colleges and schools, and groups of all ages.

Many financial problems may be avoidable with proper education and training, which is why we’ve developed these educational programs for community outreach. Our counselors present on a variety of topics, depending on your audience and their needs.

Programs we offer for financial well-being include:

  • Money Management Basics

  • 10 Basic Rules of Money Management
  • Your Credit Report and How It Affects You

Workplace performance and stress are linked.

Providing workers with tools for handling financial concerns can improve their well-being and performance on the job.

A recent survey by Financial Education for Todays Workforce revealed that workers are struggling and feel stressed because of these money-related matters:

  • Debt (66 % of respondents)
  • Saving for retirement (60 %)
  • Saving or paying for children’s education (51 %)
  • Covering basic living expenses (48 %)
  • Paying for medical expenses (36 %)

Other findings: Four out of five employers report that their employees’ personal financial issues are impacting their job performance. This is resulting in:

  • An increase in stress among employees (reported by 76 % of employers).
  • Workers’ inability to focus at work (60 %).
  • Absenteeism and tardiness (34 %).

Those reporting high levels of stress were more than four times as likely to report poor health overall, leading to more sick days, increased absenteeism and decreased productivity and higher health care costs due to stress related diseases.

This same survey noted two-thirds of organizations offering financial education rated their programs as successful, which included financial literacy classes, personal consultation services and online resources.
