If your employees ever grumble about not having the most up-to-date equipment, the CD-ROM "Why Finance Matters!" could help them understand how financial decisions impact the company's bottom line.
Developed by executive training company Strategic Management Group Inc. (SMG) in Philadelphia, the CD-ROM explains concepts such as cash flow, balance sheets and the need to create shareholder value.
According to Clark Callahan, a senior consultant with SMG, it's crucial that employees understand financial decisions because each employee comprises a significant amount of the business's value.
