Eadie Fawcett Weaver, UICCU's director of business development, said the Learn at Work program, which is offered free to area businesses, is part of the credit union's commitment to community education.
Service groups and UI fraternities and sororities also have hosted seminars in the year the program has been offered.
Learn at Work has a curriculum of about 20 different topics ranging from eliminating debt to long-term investment strategies, and companies are able to tailor-make their own presentations based on its employees' interests.
Among the most popular topics are understanding credit reports and the 10 steps to financial success, Weaver
"Right now everyone, whether they have a little or a lot of money, wants to make that money work for them the best they can," Weaver
said that although many strapped companies are unable to offer extra perks these days, seminars like these could go a long way.
"It shows employees that their employers care about them, that, 'We want you to have this information and be well-rounded and have your money work for you,'" she
