Gradually organisations are recognising the last taboo of wellness in the workplace – money!

Is there a dis-connect between pay and employee engagement.  The FCA found that half the UK is financially vulnerable.  A lack of savings, high debt levels, rising cost of living and rents coupled with a lack and mistrust of financial organisations is a key player in stress and absence levels. 

That’s why, on Thursday 1st August 2019, we hosted a webinar with Jo Thresher from Better With Money to explore “Payday People and Performance – Why should you care about how your employees handle their own money and how does this affect your engagement.

Jo expertly covered:

  • The current issues around personal money matters in the workplace
  • What you need to consider – the basics
  • Success stories – how companies are tackling the last taboo!
  • Common issues – where mistakes are made and how to overcome problems
