Workplace Leaders in Financial Education Awards
SHRM is proud to announce its partnership with the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) to launch a unique awards program to recognize and honor organizations that promote a fuller understanding of personal finance among their employees: the Workplace Leaders in Financial Education Award. In addition to the award, the program will offer tools and information to guide employers through the process of developing a workplace program for financial education. HR professionals and CPAs will be encouraged to take a leadership role in developing and implementing the programs.
This initiative is a natural extension of the work that is already being done by the AICPA and SHRM. Many of the AICPA's members volunteer as part of the 360 Degrees of Financial Literacy effort to educate Americans about managing their finances through every stage of life. Likewise, SHRM views financial literacy as a moral and business imperative, with many of its members launching financial education programs in their workplaces.
If your organization is helping its employees gain the knowledge they need to make sound financial decisions, we want to recognize you. For more information about this important awards program and how to apply, please go to www.wlife.org.
We urge you to apply for this new award, start a financial education program in your workplace and share this exciting opportunity for our professions with your colleagues.
