Are you aware of all the benefits your company offers? Beyond a retirement plan, do they offer other perks? You might be surprised to learn about some hidden benefits your company offers and The Evil HR Lady, Suzanne Lucas, joins us today to give us some examples. We also talk about company culture, training and employee satisfaction and how these play a role in our work lives. Would you take a lower paying job if it meant you had more fun at work? We’ll let you know what percentage of people say they would.
We’ll also look at a piece from Investment News on municipal bonds and the recent inflow of funds to these bonds. Ever heard of the latte factor? Our TikTok minute shows us just how many lattes we need to give up to own our dream home! What’s your guess?
Of course we’ll also throw out the Haven Life line to Jess who wants advice about buying real estate with family members. And we can’t forget Doug’s trivia.
We couldn’t bring you three shows a week without our sponsors!
