A month into 2015, how are those New Year’s resolutions holding up?

For many of the employees in your organization, beginning-of-the-year promises may have involved getting their household finances in order.

A Harris Poll of 2,255 U.S. adults found us making these money-related resolutions for 2015:

Cut back on household spending  38%

Save more  36%

Pay down more debt  35%

Save more for retirement  21%

Get rid of a credit card  15%

Harris researchers say their New Year’s resolution poll results suggest that Americans are more optimistic about the economy than they were a year ago. Percentages were down for four out of the five financial resolutions. Only “get rid of a credit card” posted similar percentages in both 2014 and 2015.
