Building financial capabilities for social enterprise employees
Recorded: March 23rd, 2017
As employers, social enterprises can directly contribute to increasing the financial capacity for their employees by providing financial education, improving financial literacy, and increasing access to financial products. As employees make the transition from subsidized social enterprise employment to entering the workforce, how do we help them navigate the benefits cliff to ensure that we are promoting income stability on the path towards self-sufficiency?
This webinar featured research from REDF’s first portfolio on why navigating this transition is so essential to individual’s success, provided examples on how social enterprises can integrate this work into their programs and businesses, and learned from leaders in the space who are bridging the gap between financial literacy and financial capability.
