Ever worry about how your staff manage their finances? Rent, credit cards, mobile phone plans and another round of vodkas – it’s not just the young ones who get behind in their payments. We don’t pay high wages in hospitality, and many staff live from week to week with little left over.
In this interview Ken Burgin talks with financial planner Craig Bigelow of Rising Tide. We discussed how to start positive conversations about money, improving people’s ‘financial intelligence’, using peer influence for positive results, the difference between good debt and bad debt, plus saving, insurance and wills. Craig worked in a bar for five years, so he knows how the industry works. This is a very positive discussion with value for staff (and owners) of all ages.
