    This presentation will help the HR Professional fully understand that there is a direct
    correlation between the employer profitability and the financial literacy level of its
    workforce. We will explore how current economic and demographic trends
    negatively affect bottom-line profitability, but importantly how the HR Professional
    can address the issue, and what he/she ultimately can do about it.

    HR Professionals will be provided with the knowledge of how to contribute to the
    organization’s fiscal success by illustrating to management the costs associated
    with financial illiteracy and countering this current trend in this economic
    environment. It will enable the HR Professional to understand what is required to
    track measure and make the case to management about the R.O.I. for these types
    of programs.

    Ultimately, the course will demonstrate to the HR Professional that by providing a
    quality financial literacy education program, the HR Department contributes directly
    to increased profitability, morale, employee retention, and workplace job
