WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
The competition to attract and retain talent is real. Companies are offering sign-on bonuses, flexible hours and a range of other perks to fill even entry-level jobs. Yet one benefit that job hunters and young employees say they want isn't being embraced: employer repayment of student loan debt.

First Tech Federal Credit Union and Technology Association of Oregon invite you to a deep dive on Wednesday, April 3rd from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm at Ruby Receptionists into how student debt is affecting job seekers and how companies providing loan repayment support or consolidation can gain a competitive advantage.

Attendees will find out what universities, companies, and financial institutions are doing to help ease the burden of this increasing debt. Including hearing from a panel which will include a local company representative committed to helping their employees pay off debt, regional university financial aid representative, and a member of the First Tech Federal Credit Union team who might have a solution for borrowers.

Together they help answer the question- how the burden of student debt a impacts employee health and productivity in the workplace and what can be done to alleviate it.

PRESENTERS
