Your Money 101
YourMoney101.org is a financial wellness and mentoring service that educates individuals and their families on the basics of personal finance. The organization primarily focuses on serving companies with less than 350 employees. The goal is to help employees build a solid financial foundation, take control of their own finances, and provide them with a pathway to reach their financial goals.
By providing this education, YourMoney101.org helps create a win-win situation for both the company and its employees. Financial stress can negatively impact an employee’s productivity and engagement, and offering financial wellness programs can alleviate some of that stress. This, in turn, can lead to increased job satisfaction, loyalty, and retention for the company.
