New Approaches to Financial Decision-Making

Too many people today live paycheck to paycheck, and as recent statistics attest, we now have more people behind on car payments and on student loans than ever before. Not having a holistic and comprehensive view of financial decision-making can lead to financial strain and defaults. This program emphasizes a new framework for financial decision-making and encourages participants to lean-in to a different view of financial success. (1 hour)

YOU AND YOUR MONEY

As a business executive, you want employees who are engaged and committed to work, while they're at work. Worrying about how to save, spend, budget and invest for the future can take a toll on employees’ focus, rendering them less productive and unhappier at work. Studies suggest that workplace programs on financial literacy can have a significant impact, not only in helping your employees for their future, but also in ensuring that future is with you.

DISCLAIMERs

DSS Consulting recognizes there are two key concerns you may have as an employer when you offer financial literacy programs. A fear of lawsuits from employees who didn’t get competent financial advice and the employees’ concern about privacy. We want you to know we share your concerns. That’s why we don’t advise client accounts, accept any type of fiduciary receipt of their money, and do not get paid other than to provide educational programs. There are never attempts to convince attendees to buy or sell a particular investment.

We do not sell, trade or otherwise share attendee or company information to any outside vendor. Workbooks that attendees receive are for their own personal use and no attempt is made to collect personal information, other than for the purposes of offering a monthly newsletter with general topics and articles relating to money and financial literacy. That information is collected electronically, on an opt-in basis only.

Outside experts who participate in the Executive programs may offer their services to attendees, but only if the contact is initiated by the employee. Outside experts are professionals who might potentially be engaged to work independently with your executives.

Each employee participant receives our written promise stipulating the above.
