I once suggested having a one-hour session on financial planning, but I was told that all these kids who graduated with degrees in engineering and so on already knew this, and that the senior people had degrees in economics and finance, so they knew this, so that just left the support staff. I bet there are other people who need this help, but it isn't getting there.

My last employer always had Fidelity come in to talk to folks about the 401k and various other financial topics including tax planning and college planning. I attended the ones that interested me, and found them useful, but they were always trying to sell their services as well.

These were lunch hour seminars, and I found them helpful and generally well-attended.

I wonder if other employers do this as well. I would imagine that the brokers would be interested in this as it is a nice way for them to get some added business.
