HR Works Presents HR Work Break: New Year, Same Financial Stress

Guests: Assad Lazarus, Chief Client & Development Officer at Purchasing Power

According to a PWC survey, financially stressed employees are twice as likely to look for new employment, and 76% report their money problems negatively affect their productivity.

In this episode, I’m joined by Assad Lazarus, Chief Client & Development Officer at Purchasing Power. Purchasing Power is a voluntary benefit company that offers employee purchase programs for brand-name consumer products, online education services, and vacation packages through convenient payroll deduction. Assad and his team seek to help employees achieve financial flexibility, especially in challenging times. Listen in as we discuss financial wellness education, tips to implement financial wellness programs, and the affect of financial stress on mental health, productivity, and retention.
