SmartAlec

Many people make poor financial decisions which often lead to distress and lack of peace of mind. These decisions often don’t come from negligence but simply from not being educated about matters of finance. Research shows that 67%* of adults in Africa are financially illiterate. Just how financially literate are you?

Financial stress affects productivity and performance directly and indirectly. Employees oppressed with financial problems are unlikely to offer you their focused attention at their full potential. Financial strain often leads to lack of focus, absenteeism, health problems & poor decision making but most important to employees is it reduces the morale of your most valued assets.
