Throughout this pandemic, PerkUp has continued to support employees at participating companies including Coca-Cola Bottling Company and Folgers Coffee Company in New Orleans. Since March of 2020, we have been working directly with impacted employees to ensure their continued financial stability. Although a financial wellness program can’t stop the effects of a pandemic, it can help employees be prepared for and make smart choices during a crisis. If employees understand comprehensive financial principles, they can make better financial choices and recover faster.
PerkUp users have completed 1192 financial learning modules during Q1 of 2020. Topics included: Creating an Annual Budget, How to Curb Spending, Easy Ways to Save, Payday Loan Alternatives, Student Loan Repayment, Credit Card Guidance, and more. As of April 2020, PerkUp has incorporated customized financial information related to Covid-19 assistance and education.
