Employers crave the flexibility that non-standard work arrangements allow, but employees hesitate to accept them because unstable incomes and a lack of access to benefits make such positions less desirable.

Join this webcast, featuring a panel of our expert economists, along with special guest speaker, Ellen Frank-Miller, Ph.D., who will discuss the role employer financial education and credit provision programs can play in helping low wage workers with volatile income streams.

Insights from this webcast:

  • How income volatility may make it more difficult for firms to attract nonstandard workers, especially in tight labor markets;
  • The effect unstable work schedules and income streams have on employee well-being; and
  • Best practices for improving job satisfaction through employer financial education and credit provision programs.

Who Should Attend: HR and finance executives who regularly hire non-standard workers and workers on flexible schedules, who wish to learn more about the role employer credit provision and financial education programs can play in improving employee retention and engagement.
