Gila Practices What It Preaches
AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Gila LLC is pleased to announce it has successfully completed a
financial fitness program, exclusively for its own employees. In
partnership with A+ Federal Credit Union and Financial Fitness Greater
Austin (FFGA), Gila offered employees a program designed to assist them
with strengthening their own personal financial fitness.
"We spend our days counseling our Clients on personal finance and fiscal
responsibility. We wanted to spend some time bringing that message home
to help our employees strengthen their financial positions. Just like
any exercise, personal finance needs to be monitored and worked to see
any improvements," said Bruce Cummings, Chief Executive Officer of Gila.
Gila specializes in revenue cycle management nationwide.
The Company invited all employees to participate and offered incentive
prizes for winning contests within the program. Employees had to
complete several requirements including a personal budget analysis and
attending several training courses on topics concerning personal
finance. They also had to write essays on how the program helped them or
enabled them to help others with financial fitness.
"Gila's core purpose is to use our experience to service our Clients and
help them reduce their debt. This often involves taking debtors through
a personal finance analysis to help them resolve outstanding obligations
as soon as possible. Living out this mission includes practicing what we
preach. We took an opportunity to help our employees strengthen their
personal finance skills, better equipping them for their own futures,"
