Public Sector Financial Wellness Plans in Action
Thursday, July 15, 2021
Category: HR Events


Financial security is a key motivator in the workplace. Building an integrated financial wellness program provides employees with the resources to make important and personal financial decisions with confidence. This can have a significant impact on employee morale, productivity, and retention.

Join IPMA-HR as we highlight what three agencies learned after being awarded grants as part of a collaboration between the Center for State and Local Government Excellence (SLGE), the International Public Management Association for Human Resources (IPMA-HR), the National Association of State Treasurers' Foundation (NASTF), and Wells Fargo Financial Wellness Grant Program. According to SLGE’s survey on Finances and Employment Outlook due to COVID-19, 56 percent of respondents report that they and their families have been negatively impacted financially by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speakers from each agency will share what they learned under this grant program. They will discuss how the grant has helped start, grow, and enhance their employee financial wellness programs, as well as sharing the successes and challenges they have encountered

Join us and benefit from their experiences and leverage what they have learned into your own programs.
