AICPA and SHRM Establish Financial Education Award for Employers


The Institute has partnered with the Society for Human Resource Management to launch the Workplace Leaders in Financial Education Award.

 

The award recognizes employers who provide financial education programs that improve the personal well-being of their employees.

 

All employers—corporate, not-for-profit and government—with offices in the United States and its territories are eligible for the award. Interested organizations can submit award applications through July 1 at wlife.org, where employers can also find a toolkit and information to help develop their own financial education programs.

 

Applications will be judged by members of the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Literacy and the National CPA Financial Literacy Commission, human resources professionals and CPAs.
