It's a rule as old as HR itself: Whatever you do, no matter how much they need it, no matter how much they plead, never EVER give financial advice to employees. Over the years, this rule has served the profession well. But the era of the financial wellness program, it’s time to rethink what we allow ourselves to do.

“Dear Timmy” is here to help -- he’s a lot like Dear Abby, but younger, taller, male, and a lot more HR-ish. He's Tim Sackett, SHRM-SCP, SPHR, one of the top HR Influencers in the world, and he will walk you through the financial wellness education that you can give to your employees, describe the guidance you should be giving to your employees, and point out the counsel you should still be afraid of giving.

At one point we were all given bad advice. Tim is here to help clear up how you can deliver great information to your employees to help them make better financial wellness decisions.

About the Presenter: Tim Sackett, SHRM-SCP, SPHR, is the president of HRU Technical Resources, a leading IT and engineering staffing firm headquartered in Lansing, Michigan. Mr. Sackett has 20 years of combined executive HR and talent acquisition experience, working for Fortune 500 companies in health care, retail, dining, and technology.
