FinFit Enhances Ready University to Provide Premier Financial Education
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– FinFit, a FinTech company that provides over 150,000 employers with a unique financial wellness benefit platform, has upgraded Ready University, its educational portal, to offer enhanced financial training and education. Ready University will now feature 38 short, engaging lessons focused on key elements of financial wellbeing: money basics, paying for college, loans and payments, buying a home and planning for retirement.
The annual survey and awards program are designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the financial technology industry. FinFit is proud to be recognized on this year’s list with such impressive company. Businesses that receive this award operate in, and serve companies and consumers in, a wide range of financial services including banking and mortgages, insurance, payments and financial advisory.
“Education is a key pillar to a financial wellness program. It’s important that we continue to motivate our members with relevant, engaging and interactive resources,” says David Kilby, president of FinFit and author of The New Productivity Engine: The compelling impact of financial wellness in the workplace. “Through Ready University, our members can immerse themselves in real-life financial scenarios and training resources. Complex processes – like buying a home, for example – are broken down in an easily digestible manner. Providing accessible financial education and resources to help our members handle today’s challenges puts them in a position to start planning for tomorrow.”
Covering everything from common account types to the basics of investing, each module within the revamped Ready University will provide users with a bite-sized, instructional animation to make topics approachable and relatable. Ready University’s modules encourage user engagement by providing knowledge checks and activities throughout each course to ensure that the user is not just watching a video or reading an article in Ready University, but that they are absorbing and retaining the information. All courses in Ready University are arranged into intuitive playlists. A user can focus on specific aspects of their financial wellness if they already have a goal in mind, or they can start at the beginning and work their way through the entire offering.
Family sharing is an exciting new addition to Ready University. FinFit members now have the opportunity to share financial education with their families. Ready University will encompass 15 age-appropriate courses designed for the children of members, ranging from grades K-12, in an effort to build strong financial foundations. These courses will cover topics like saving, investing, credit and borrowing, renting vs. owning, and financing higher education.
