DCCU at Work

Images of employees at workDCCU is committed to helping improve the financial health of our community. We know that for many people, money can be a source of stress. Nearly 80% of Americans say they live paycheck to paycheck, many uncertain of when the next paycheck will come. This is precisely why many employers are committing to taking the necessary steps to help alleviate some of the financial stress from their employees by providing financial wellness tools and programs in the workplace.

DCCU at Work is a free workplace financial wellness program offered to local employers. We offer on-site training sessions and online resources that help workers reduce their stress levels, raise productivity, and improve retention. We believe that when employees have the tools they need to better manage their assets and grow financially, everyone benefits.

How it Works

1. Determine Needs
First, we assess the needs of your particular group. You choose the topics, frequency, and format.

2. Develop Program
Financial wellness is not one-size-fits-all. Some employees may be planning to retire in the next five years while others are starting to save for their children’s college education. Our process is personalized and tailored to fit the need of your unique workforce.

3. Conduct Training
DCCU will come on-site and conduct the sessions where it is most convenient for you and your employees. Our financial educators teach participants how changing their behavior can help them meet their financial goals.

4. Obtain Feedback
At the end of each session, we will answer questions, provide additional guidance, offer a follow-up, and obtain feedback from participants.

5. Share Results
DCCU will provide you feedback on the training and work with you to determine next steps.
