Easy Financial Planning: Educating and Investing During Financial Literacy Month

Whether your financial questions sound more like, “How much money do I need to retire?” or “How can I make more money this month?” it’s safe to say that we’ve all considered our financial future at some point recently.
You may not know this, but April is Financial Literacy Month, where we focus on educating people about the importance of planning for a secure financial future. Individual goals will inevitably look different, and at Mission Health, we are invested in helping our employees identify and maximize what that plan looks like for them.

As part of our commitment to supporting healthy financial futures for our employees, Mission Health partners with DailyPay: a service that allows employees more control over when, where, and how they access their earned pay. This program was in the works long before the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic prompted everyone to pivot and re-evaluate priorities, and for us, DailyPay remained a priority. We rolled out this new optional benefit in the second half of 2020, with rapid uptake across our communities in the first few months. While not everyone will have a reason to fully utilize the DailyPay services right away (or possibly ever), the partnership brings our employees access to many additional benefits…

Including Financial Literacy Month resources!

From balance boosting giveaways, to access to free financial counselors, Mission Health is proud to be able to connect our employees with the valuable resources they need to maximize their financial goals for the future.
If you’re looking to continue your career in the healthcare profession (or start one!) and all this sounds like a great perk to you, we’d love for you to check out our locations and current job openings! Beyond our constant excitement over welcoming potential new members to the Mission Health team, a focus on financial literacy is important because the financial health of an employee has ripple effects that may not seem obvious at first.
The healthcare profession relies on staff who dedicate their time, attention, and skills to caring for some of our nation’s most vulnerable. At Mission Health, we believe that it’s our employees—delivering the Mission Experience every day—who differentiate us. An engaged, cared for employee is able to give the quality service that our residents and patients deserve. But those are just words if they aren’t backed by action and support from the company. So really, it’s how we support our employees that matters!

Offering DailyPay, and the host of financial planning resources available through the platform, is one way we make life easier for Mission employees, but it’s not the end. Our goal as one of the 2021 Top Workplaces in Tampa Bay (and beyond) is to drive employee engagement through a suite of employee assistance resources that put our staff first. So, if you’re a Mission Health employee reading this, be sure to check out the MH Employee Resource App to learn more, and if you’ve stopped by for inspiration on how to continue to innovate and support employees at your own workplace, we highly recommend a deep dive into financial resources that can empower employees.

When someone asks themselves, “How am I doing financially?” we want the answer to be “Great!”

…And then we give them the tools to do even better.

There’s no wrong way to start thinking about your financial future, so let’s get smart about how we talk about money. Let’s empower employees by giving them the tools they need to succeed during Financial Literacy Month and beyond!
