Financial wellbeing in the workplace

9 June 2021 from 2pm - 3pm

Almost 8 in 10 UK employees take their money worries to work, affecting their performance.  Fortunately, there are many ways to champion financial wellbeing in the workplace.

What we mean by financial wellbeing

It is about feeling secure and in control.  It is knowing that you can pay the bills today, can deal with the unexpected, and are on track for a healthy financial future.  In short: confident and empowered.

Why it matters in the workplace

Money worries are the biggest cause of stress for UK employees.  They are damaging to business too, often resulting in staff sickness.  The case for financial wellbeing at work is compelling.

  • 4.2 million worker days each year are lost in absences because of a lack of financial wellbeing.  That’s the equivalent of £626 million in lost output.
  • Nearly 7 in 10 UK employers believe staff performance is negatively affected when employees are under financial pressure

Want to know how the Money and Pension Service (an arms-length body of the Department of Work and Pensions) can help you enhance financial wellbeing in your workplace? To reserve your place, please email us on [email protected] and we will forward the invite.
