Inflation and Recession Concerns are Directly Impacting Employees

When: September 28, 10:00 AM

Brought to you by, Empower, record-keeper of the Massachusetts 401(k) CORE Plan. Empower’s Wealth and Wellness Index Mid-Year Survey reveals sobering details about how inflation is impacting Americans’ financial attitudes and behaviors: 85% say they are worried about inflation, 69% say their income is not keeping pace and 56% believe their standard of living is declining. A survey of 2,000 Americans helps identify ways employers can support employees during this period of workplace cultural and economic change. It explores how the current environment is forcing Americans to make lifestyle adjustments, and how anxiety and worry during these times affects health, family and work performance. The research also explores the actions Americans are taking to upgrade their quality of life and their satisfaction with work situations. Learn how the MA 401(k) CORE Plan can help your nonprofit employees save for retirement.

Speakers: Lisa Cardinal, Sales Director of the Massachusetts 401(k) CORE Plan, and Luis Fleites, Director of Thought Leadership for Empower Retirement.

Keeping Tabs on Federal Grant Funds: Key Considerations in Contracting for Service

When: October 25, 1:00 PM

Nonprofits recipients of federal grants are responsible for every penny of the federal grant dollars they receive. Because nonprofits exercise less direct control over outside service providers than over their own staff, it’s important to choose service providers carefully and hold them accountable. This is particularly true now with the infusion of significant federal COVID-19 relief funds and the scrutiny those funds bring. In this session, we’ll examine key considerations in – and answer your questions on – selecting, contracting with and managing outside service providers using federal grant funds.

Speakers: Eleanor Evans and Rob Leahy, attorneys in the Nonprofit Group at Hemenway & Barnes LLP
