San Diego, CA (PressExposure) October 04, 2009 -- DebtWave Credit Counseling, Inc. today launched a new series of financial education seminars for businesses and organizations in San Diego County. DebtWaveâs âSmart With Your Moneyâ (SWYM) seminars are free to organizations and their employees and focus on a range of personal finance issues.
In the worst financial crisis in decades, many Americans are facing declines in investment and retirement income, as well as concerns about the housing market and access to credit. For those dealing with job loss or other major financial setbacks, financial stress levels are at an all-time high.
âResearch shows that financial stress can affect an employeeâs productivity level, and if offered, most employees would take advantage of financial consultation services in the workplace,â said DebtWave Director of Community Outreach, Chase Peckham. âThis is where DebtWave comes in â our education team can help companies and their employees better manage their finances, leading to a more productive and profitable work environment, as well as more satisfied employees.â Based in San Diego since its founding in 2002, DebtWave is committed to serving the local business community. In 2004 DebtWave launched its Wave of the Future program bringing financial literacy and credit card debt education to San Diegoâs youth through high schools and associations. The SWYM seminars are customized for each company or organization, based on employer and employee interests. Some possible topics for seminars include developing a spending plan/budgeting, establishing financial goals, building wealth, debt management strategies, credit reporting/scores and housing counseling.
