WorldatWork has received the WLIFE award (Workplace Leader in Financial Education) for its commitment to bringing financial education to employees. The award recognizes those that create innovative personal finance education programs for the workplace.
Created this year by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the award showcases employers who implement programs that help employees understand and improve personal finances.
Director of Human Resources for WorldatWork, Kip Kipley, states, “WorldatWork provides financial education to take care of our most important investment–our employees. While the real reward for our Financial Fitness Program is the positive change it has had on the overall financial wellness of our staff, it is always nice to be recognized with an award!”
WorldatWork has developed the Financial Fitness Program to help employees understand the principles of personal finance and implement them into their lives, with the goal to decrease financial stress. Partnering with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), WorldatWork has developed various services including Financial Fitness Assessment, coaching, and personal finance seminars.
