Empowering Employees and Advocating Financial Literacy

Financial health is essential to our overall wellbeing – it affects many areas of our lives, including our mental health, relationships, and future aspirations. That’s why April is designated National Financial Literacy Month; it’s to help raise public awareness of the importance of financial literacy and maintaining smart money management habits.

As the Total Rewards Consultant for the Financial Health pillar at Kellogg Company, I lead the strategy to help our employees become financially sound and bring to life the financial benefit programs that enrich our employees’ lives.

In recognition of National Financial Literacy Month, Kellogg provided multiple educational sessions for employees to create healthy habits and take charge of building their financial futures. Topics focused on everything from the link between money and mental health, to investing, tackling debt and creating a budget.  

In 2019, we introduced our My Total Health framework covering physical, financial, emotional and social health to focus on encouraging employees to show up as our complete and authentic selves, sharing the full complexity and richness of who we are and embracing our lives in and out of work.

It is incredibly rewarding to hear the personal stories from our employees on how our Kellogg programs and services helped them dig out of debt, save for a life event (wedding, house, college etc.), make sound investment choices and put them on a path to financial wellness.

To further our commitment, Kellogg joined a group of prominent business, sports and non-profit leaders as a member of “Financial Literacy for All,”—a 10-year commitment to reach millions of youth and working adults, providing them with the necessary tools and life experience to become confident in making financial decisions that unlock greater wellbeing for themselves, their families, and their communities in general.

We know financial health is essential to overall wellbeing, which is why as Financial Literacy Month ends, we’ll continue to provide our employees with the education and resources they need throughout the year to achieve their financial goals.
