The Center on Business and Poverty runs PFEEF presently. But we are in the process of bringing in new leadership both in the US and the UK. Historically, PFEEF has acted as a broker for groups that offer online and in-person financial literacy courses – helping leverage technology to improve financial well-being through ongoing financial literacy training. We have assisted more than a million employees and others from over 850 employers and through several newspapers. Working with employers, more than 300,000 employees have completed in excess of 800,000 hours of training. The research shows up to a 70% improvement in financial knowledge, attitudes and behavior – creating fewer late fees paid related to their credit cards, decreased debt, and less stress.

PFEEF also distributes the Personal Wellness Survey and Scale. This is the longest-used survey in the workplace-based financial wellness field. It has been used, in different forms, millions of times, and has a benchmarking component. If you are interested in PFEEF, go to PFEEF.org.
