About the Webinar

Part 1 of our newest series, Providing Financial Wellness Advice for Managers and Employees in ESOP Companies: Conversations with the Experts.


How well educated are your employees about financial wellness? As employee-owners, they have more possibilities and more to think about. How does the ESOP fit in with their wealth-building plans? How should they think about their 401(k) plan? How should they approach financial wellness decisions overall in terms of savings and spending? What mindset do different generations have toward money and financial wellness?


Learning Objective: Awareness of need and ideas for creating your own financial wellness program.  Ways to fulfill fiduciary duties (ERISA) as a plan sponsor.  Comprehensive financial wellness at home leads to workplace wellness. 


Participants who attend this call can expect to learn:






  • Understand the fiduciary responsibilities of a plan sponsor 
  • What are the best practices in today’s retirement plan marketplace
  • What to consider for your financial wellness plan
  • How to build a financial wellness plan itself to engage all your employees
