January 21:  The Long Term Erosion of Financial Wellness

with Kelley Wheeler, Financial Advisor

Program valid for 1 PDC for SHRM-CP and HRCI recertification!

Economic prosperity and security are slipping out of reach for many Americans as they struggle with the foundational elements of financial wellness: managing day-to-day finances, protecting against key financial risks, and achieving important financial goals. Several trends are contributing to this phenomenon, and while problematic today, may prove even more dire tomorrow—especially for younger generations finding it difficult to save for retirement or protect against unexpected life events. Recent research from Prudential explores the financial wellness challenges Americans are facing, and identifies a number of opportunities to overcome them.

Following the this presentation we will have a panel discussion.

Lunch Meeting:

11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Flywheel Coworking @The Jay Hurt Hub

210 Delburg Street

Davidson, NC

Important SHRM chapter designation information for LKNHR members!

National SHRM members, please designate LakeNormanHR, Inc. as your local SHRM affilliate chapter (Chapter #0756).  Here's why: LKNHR receives support from SHRM based on how many LKNHR National SHRM members designate us as their local chapter. The more support LakeNormanHR receives from SHRM, the more benefits are passed on to you. For LKNHR to remain as an affiliate SHRM chapter, at least 50% of our members must be national SHRM members. Your support can help us achieve these two goals. Just click HERE and complete the online form. It's that easy!
