Personal finance is the number one distraction and stressor facing team members today.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Personal Finance is the number one distraction facing employees today. Financial Peace @ Work is a life-changing program that eliminates the outside distraction of personal finance, empowering team members to perform to the level of intensity their company demands. This program teaches people how to take control of their finances and set realistic goals. Once employees eliminate the distraction of financial problems they perform to the level of intensity their company demands.

Up to 40 percent of employees report stress over personal finances has negatively impacted their productivity in the past year, Garman, Leech & Grable (1996). Employers investing in a comprehensive financial program for employees are seeing a 300 percent return on investment in gained productivity and decreased expenses.

The average family attending a Financial Peace @ Work program pays off $5,300 in debt and saves $2,700 in the first 91 days after beginning the program and is completely out of debt, except for the mortgage, in 18 to 24 months.

Financial Peace @ Work deals with behavior and not just symptoms of financial problems. The program works because it not only gives team members the tools they need to win but it holds them accountable to put those tools into practice in their daily lives, directly impacting their companys bottom line. Personal finance is 80 percent behavior and only 20 percent head knowledge.

The employees responsible for purchasing things for the college are much more conscientious about spending money, said Sandy Mooney, CFO for Texas Chiropractic College. They do not worry and think there is something better out there with higher pay.

Financial Peace @ Work eliminates the outside distraction of stress over personal finance resulting in:
Reduced Absenteeism
Increased worker productivity
More committed team members
Increased morale and work satisfaction
Reduced turnover

Financial Peace @ Work has been an excellent training tool for our team members. I would recommend it to any organization, said Sharon Kennedy, director of human resources for Clayton Homes.

Financial Peace @ Work is a turnkey program offered in three (3) formats to best meet a companys needs:
Workshop One-day workshop designed to communicate the Financial Peace principles. Team Members leave with a budget, a plan to eliminate debt and a plan for investing.
13-Week Class This comprehensive program conducted by one of Daves trained facilitators gives employees in-depth information and a plan of action.
Train the Trainer Daves staff trains a member of a companys team on how to facilitate the 13-week class and provide ongoing support to them through the Web and conference calls.

Jeff Green, a president of Greco Frames says, Financial Peace @ Work is probably the best thing weve ever done. The benefits are unbelievable.

Financial Peace @ Work is for any company. Currently, the program is being implemented at companies such as Hobby Lobby, Ford Motor Company, DaimlerChrysler, Papa Johns and many others.
