Organisational changes such as restructuring, merging, downsizing, and other responses to marketplace pressures, as well as an ageing workforce and the need to retain talented workers, generate many challenges for managers and employees.
You may wish to consider strengthening your position as an "employer of choice" by providing opportunities for your employees to become more financially confident.
Financial Literacy and education is a passion of ours.
We are involved in a number of education programs by writing and presenting seminars for workplace learning projects such as the Steps to Securing your Financial Future program.
Whilst many may think financial planning is dry and all about numbers, in her presentations Michelle Tate-Lovery brings to life the real concept, which is ultimately about living the lifestyle you desire. Her audience leaves inspired to take charge of their financial position and find out what’s really possible in life.
Some of the seminar topics we run include:-
- Back to basics with salary packaging
- Coming together as a couple – the financial implications
- Investment Fundamentals
- Life after taking a redundancy package
- Retirement planning
- Super is getting better and better
- Take control of your financial wellbeing
- Talking to your children about money
- Transitioning to aged care with peace of mind – are you worried about your parents, and when do you plan your own affairs?
If you are interested in running one of these topics in your workplace, or to design your own inhouse financial literacy program, please contact Karolina Samborska, Practice Manager Unified Financial Services, Ph (03) 9349 1525, or email Karolina@unifiedfs.com.au.

"Afternoon Karolina – just wanted to ask you to pass on a very big thank you to Lisa for last night. I was in the kitchen when she left so I didn’t get a chance to say bye to her. She did a brilliant job – and the feedback sheets reflected that".

"Thank you very much for last night's session, it was exactly what I was after and I definitely learnt a lot.
