The Yo-Yo Company

Basic business & financial literacy.

Developing basic business and financial literacy at all levels of a company is the first step toward helping individual employees realize how their decisions impact the bottom line. The Yo-Yo Company workshop was designed to educate employees on the key financial metrics of a manufacturing business in a non-threatening way, using plain-language and easy-to-understand examples. In this course, participants will be guided through a real-life scenario of starting a manufacturing business including the realities of borrowing capital, repaying loans and monitoring cash flow.

The Yo-Yo Company workshop will help employees understand the fundamentals of the income statement, cash flow statement and the balance sheet.

*This training is also available in a “service” version, which is offered upon request.
