Only ten employers will be selected, and classes will be limited to 20 employees each. All program activities are conducted at the employer’s facility during the employee’s non working hours.Employer Assisted Programs have been implemented throughout the United States as an additional employer benefit. “RADA recognizes that such programs contribute to employee personal financial stability, which further contributes to overall employee performance and retention. Programs often focus on a limited goal such as financial literacy, improving credit, or, achieving home ownership, and target low to moderate income workers. The RADA program curriculum incorporates information in each of these areas,” said Wallace Geen, RADA President.
