Credit Score Education and Counselling as an Employee Benefit in a Financial Wellness Program
August 7, 2012 at 12:30 - 1:30 PM ET
Hallie Gabor Hawkins, JD & CCRR® & CITRMS®, Financial Education Trainer and Certified Credit Report Reviewer(Get it Together Workshops, LLC)
Your employees are being denied credit for a home or car and/or having collection calls coming to cell phones at work.
On way to help them is to offer Credit Score Education and Counseling as a benefit to your employees to reduce their stress. The benefit to the company is that this can make the employee more productive and there is a proven ROI on investments in financial wellness.

Though financial wellness programs are implemented in companies as a benefit- often credit and credit scores are not discussed. Get It Together finds that often in the area of money and financial stress, credit scores and understanding them are a great concern.

Understanding credit scores is also a complicated, individualized matter which is much more effective with one-to-one consultations. Our program addresses these issues head on, gives specific information to employees that is actionable and even works one on one with employees.

During the individual session with a Certified Credit Report Reviewer, they will:
1. Learn how to read and understand a credit report.
2. Receive a detailed report reviewing negative & positive information in your credit report
3. Learn ways to increase or maintain your credit score.
4. Receive information on how to resolve inaccuracies in the report.
5. Learn general Cash Flow and Budgeting.
6. Receive a personalized action plan for your credit management.

We will discuss:
1. Why financial wellness programs need to include credit management.
2. What should be covered in the credit education portion of a financial wellness program.
3. Pitfalls to avoid when implementing the program.
4. Specifics on how to implement the program equally for all employees in all office locations.
5. Different structures for implementation including costs and working with your current financial wellness program.

Who Should Participate
• Hr Professionals • EAP Professionals • Benefits Professionals • Wellness Professionals
What You Will Learn
1. The benefits of offering Credit Score Education and Counseling to your employees. 2. How to implement a Credit Score Education and Counseling Program in your company. 3. What information this type of program should include and how to evaluate the programs offered.
