Financial Distractions - Integrity Moments - May 14

Financial Distractions

Years ago, I was reviewing Michael’s personality profile results with him. Michael’s profile came back inconclusive, which meant there was most likely a traumatic event going on in the participant’s life.

Michael was evasive but assured me everything was fine. The next day, Michael’s boss called and said, “Your assessment of Michael was correct. He missed work because his house was taken in foreclosure.”

A PwC study discovered that 30% of employees are distracted by personal finances at work and 12% miss work occasionally due to financial problems.

Ecclesiastes 7:12 says, “Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves those who have it.”

Employers who desire undistracted workers might consider ways to provide them with financial training and wisdom.
