2014 Assets Learning Conference

Wealth Building and Protection in the Workplace

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014
10:15 - 11:45 AM

Room: Catholic University

Low-wage workers and self-employed individuals often struggle to make ends meet every month. Unexpected crises, small or large, can seriously impact their ability to get ahead, and to turn wages or revenue into wealth. This session will discuss the issues affecting these individuals today, highlight new research that helps us better understand the financial choices workers and entrepreneurs are making, and discuss some innovative ways organizations are supporting wealth building and protection in a work environment.
