Do you feel comfortable talking about Money?


Guest Blogger

If someone asks a financial question, let’s say, how much money do you have? Would you answer? Would you divert the conversation or just say “I’m sorry but that’s a private matter.”

Asking someone about salary or going into details about debt is just not a casual conversation and can turn any conversation into a get me out of here situation. A survey from Porch.com found that 92% of people found that asking how much money someone has in his or her savings account as the most inappropriate question along with asking about salary (83.5%).

But let’s not forget that what you ask often depends on whom you are asking. You might feel a bit more comfortable talking about money with your own family but how about with your co-workers? Talking about finances at work might be awkward but this is an important conversation we must have, not only this beneficial to employees by having a transparency but it helps to fight bigger issues like the gender pay gap that still persists. For example, this survey found that 80 percent of women said that co-workers shouldn’t talk about money and a new study found that Indiana has 44th worst gender pay gap according to business.org.

As for age, millennials seemed to be the most comfortable with having this conversation, not only with family members but also with friends, which is a big difference from Gen Xers and baby boomers. Gen Xers said that they would answer a question about money if a friend asked (34.8 percent) but almost 36 percent said that they would divert the conversation.
