TIAA Financial IQ Challenge Results

Last month TIAA sponsored a short and engaging online quiz open to all employees.  The quiz offered the opportunity to learn more about your financial knowledge by asking five daily financial questions. A gaming aspect was added to increase participation through friendly competition across departments and anonymous scoring.  Below is a snapshot of the results.
