We as a company believe strongly that diverse experiences create happier employers and stronger outcomes.
If you could hire one celebrity to join your team at AceUp, who would it be?
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, because he’s the most motivating guy I can think of! We love his instagram...
FINANCIAL WELLNESS AT ACEUP
What does financial wellness mean to you, in the context of the workplace?
Financial wellness, to us, means providing an environment where employees have the resources they need to feel confident about their financial situation. On top of paying well, this includes things like paid time off, 401k, health insurance, financial educational tools, so they can focus on life and work, not money.
Is the financial wellness of your team important to you as an employer? If so, why?
Our teams financial wellness is extremely important to me. As mentioned before, it’s crucial for us to help our team live and work effectively and with minimal stress or distraction. Money troubles can be devastating to one’s psyche, so we like to make sure our team is financially well.

Why did you decide to partner with LearnLux to offer financial wellness to your employees?
We decided to partner with LearnLux because education is the first step to financial wellness. By providing our employees with the financial education and resources they need, we can help take the first step on the journey to financial wellness.
Have you personally used any of LearnLux’s lessons to help gain knowledge or work through a personal finance challenge?
I’ve used LearnLux to fully understand my 401k’s from past jobs. Understanding the implications of moving this money around, and how to best consolidate it, has been a lifesaver. I am not personally experienced with these things, so the the learning modules are very helpful to my learning style!
One thing my company loves about LearnLux is…
The weekly outreach from the amazing team, which helps me stay afloat on things I don’t know I should be paying attention to.
Thanks for sharing your experiences with us, Patrick!
