Find Financial Fitness in 2020?—Yes, Please!

Posted by Ulliance on Jan 15, 2020 9:25:46 AM

Have you ever wondered why you use money in a particular way?

Achieve Financial Wellness in 2020. 

Want to make more money? Think differently about it. If that sounds too easy, it's because it's easier said than done! But it is a key to creating financial stability.

Our relationship, our feelings and thoughts about money, start in childhood. If you were fortunate enough to be born into a financially stable and fiscally responsible family, you probably picked up on some healthy notions about money. You probably learned the value of saving, were encouraged to develop delayed gratification, and maybe as you matured, you learned about the secrets of compound interest and eventually, how to invest.

Holidays are NOT a HAPPY

time for everyone.

Deck the Halls with De-stress and Holly!

Posted by Ulliance on Dec 6, 2019 9:07:49 AM

Many people look forward to the holiday season and the start of a new year.  It often provides an opportunity to spend quality time with family, take a few days off from work, or go on a winter getaway.

While the holiday season can be a fun and joyous time, it can also be very stressful.  The combined effort of shopping, attending social events, and entertaining guests can quickly become too much to handle.  A poll by the American Psychological Association shows that eight out of ten people anticipate increased stress over the holidays.  In some cases, the increase in stress and anxiety may even lead to depression.  The Mayo Clinic reports that depression is often an unwelcome guest during the holidays.

Embedded EAPs Can Undermine the Mission of EAPs

Posted by Kathryn Lynch-Morin on Nov 13, 2019 8:43:48 AM

Look closely at the price tag and service offering differences between programs before you decide which is right for your organization. 

When an organization invests in employee assistance programs (EAPs), it is making an investment in its people and in the bottom line.

Employees with access to EAPs benefit from brief, solutions-focused counseling that is combined with an assessment and referral to other resources for long-term needs. Problems are resolved and employees who receive help are more productive and less likely to miss work or leave the job because of a crisis. Work teams learn more effective ways to communicate and organizations become more efficient and harmonious.
