YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio, March 22, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- There are over 100 employees at Boak & Sons who work in the residential and commercial roofing, siding, gutters, insulation and sheet metal departments. With tax season in full swing, Sam Boak takes the time to meet with employees to discuss finances. He finds this to be an important part of the company's culture, supporting staff beyond the traditional responsibilities as an employer.
Sam Boak has an open-door policy; employees know they can come to him for work or personal reasons. Employees who are struggling to understand and improve their financial situation look to him for guidance. "It is about making a difference in the lives of our employees, not just providing a weekly paycheck," Sam Boak says. "It is great to see their joy when they receive their 401(k) and profit sharing. Some of these men never had an opportunity to save like this. They thank us for helping them take care of their future and their joy shows me that I am doing the right thing."
At Boak & Sons, all employees are given the opportunity to open a 401(k) plan and are encouraged to invest in it. Sam Boak believes everyone should be able to successfully save for their retirement. He provides multiple resource opportunities to emphasize the need to invest for the future and teaches his employees how to set themselves up for financial success.
One of the things Sam Boak does to assist in bettering his employee's financial futures is present a slideshow at the mandatory annual Safety Day. Chief financial officer, Pat Finn, goes into detail the amount of money you can save if you invest small portions of your paycheck into a 401(k) plan. With only half of Americans having access to a 401(k), this basic education is important for Boak & Sons employees. It also gives them the opportunity for tax advantages and a "built-in" savings plan as funds are automatically taken out of a paycheck.
