Personal finance is seen as the #1 issue causing workplace stress. Financial stress has been shown to be linked to mental, physical and emotional health problems – some of which can be severe. At McMaster, we are concerned about your well-being and offer courses and supports focused on strengthening the financial literacy of employees. As part of this program, we have partnered with the Credit Counselling Society of Canada to facilitate free, educational workshops.
The Financial Basics: Borrowing 101 session is designed to help employees learn about the various types of financing including secured, unsecured, joint, secondary and short-term/high interest credit. Participants will also learn about leasing versus buying a vehicle, mortgages and student loans.
This program is funded by McMaster University.
