Mark Alfuth, a finance senior lecturer, will be presenting at the Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce Workplace Wellness Network on Wednesday, January 29th from 8:00-9:30 a.m. at the Metropolis Resort and Conference Center. 

Today's financial world is incredibly complicated! Employees and employers together face many challenges. On top of that, financial health is a leading cause of stress in the workplace today. This discussion, led by UW-Eau Claire Finance Professor Mark Alfuth, will explore the issues of financial health and the importance of providing opportunities for employees to discuss these critical issues. Providing financial health education and resources can lead to more productive, efficient employees.
