A recent Employee Research Survey by the Canadian Payroll Association revealed that 40% of Canadians are overwhelmed by their current debt levels, while a staggering 44% of workers are living pay cheque to pay cheque. In the same survey, 46% of Canadian workers cited decreased productivity, absenteeism and high turnover as effects of financial stress impacting their workplace performance.

How can you help your employees reduce their financial stress, and protect your company’s bottom line?

In this workshop, The Credit Counselling Society’s Financial Educator, Sheilagh Cahill will teach you how to identify the signs of employee financial distress and provide information for employees dealing with debt.

You will learn how to help your employees by learning:

  • Top reasons for financial trouble
  • Signs of financial distress
  • Ways of dealing with debt, and
  • Debt collection practices.
