Financial Wellness at Work Kicks Off at Local Companies

In the complex world of money matters, the Financial Wellness at Work program is making a big difference for workers. The Financial Wellness at Work program is here to guide employees, thanks to a collaborative effort between United Way and local businesses. At Davico Manufacturing, Imtra Corporation, Milhench Supply Company, and New Bedford Community Health, workers are finding the support they need to take charge of their financial destinies.

Dora Lima, a trained Financial Wellness coordinator at United Way, is stationed right in the workplace. Financial Wellness at Work is a program that offers personalized coaching, year-long workshops, and access to resources, all aimed at empowering employees to make informed decisions about their money. Whether it's mastering healthy financial habits, navigating crisis situations, or securing low-cost loans through the Taunton Federal Credit Union, Dora is there every step of the way.

Recent orientations held at all four companies have been met with enthusiasm and participation. Employees have eagerly embraced the opportunity to learn more about managing their finances. Now, with weekly office hours in place, employees have even more chances to seek guidance and support from Dora.

As the pilot program draws to a close in June, United Way is already looking towards the future. Plans are underway to expand the program to other companies in the community, ensuring that more employees have access to the tools and resources needed to achieve financial stability.

The success of the Financial Wellness at Work program underscores the importance of community collaboration in addressing financial challenges. Through the dedication of United Way and local businesses, employees are empowered to build brighter financial futures for themselves and their families.
