You can't tell how far you've come unless you know where you started.
Assessment comes in tiers. One - where are you? Two - how far have you come? Three - Where are you going? Nothing motivates likes getting part way up a hill (if you're hiking), or down a hill (if you're skiing) and looking back to where you started. The "I did all that" assessment can be one of the strongest motivators for continued success in greater challenges, as well as understanding what did not work to make adjustments!
This section of the LEARN program will concentrate on setting benchmarks and milestones for all your programs, that will allow you to track how far you've come.
It's Time For Each of Us to Reassess...
That Includes Reviewing Your Finances!
When we designed our McMahon Wellness program, we wanted it to be a multifaceted program to help our employees better ways to approach, and take responsibility for, their total well being.
During this quarter of 2020, we will focus on assessments as we navigate these uncertain times. It is important to assess our total well being so we can come up with steps to improve it. Over the past few months, our Wellness Committee has been promoting the importance of taking care one’s physical and mental health and now we are encouraging everyone to complete a reassessment of their personal finances. You will want to consider things like managing debt, credit, protecting assets, identity theft, retirement and healthcare costs, and caring for family members when during your own assessment.
One way you can do this assessment is by taking advantage of our 401(k) plan administrator, BPAS, resource, Financial Finesse.
Financial Finesse provides us access to an online Financial Learning Center where you can take your confidential personal Financial Wellness Assessment.
Based on your answers you’ll be given a step-by-step personal action plan—just as if you had sat down with a financial planner.
