So far, 2020 has been an extremely turbulent time for people’s finances.
Although the changes to tax allowances announced in the UK Budget looked set to put some money back in the pockets of thousands of people, many could have since seen their families’ financial health change as the UK continues to battle the coronavirus.
With the average household debt now totalling more than £60,000, financial worries are weighing heavily.
Employers have a key role to play in helping their people make healthy financial choices and habits. This Personnel Today webinar, in association with nudge, will examine why financial wellbeing is more important than ever and how businesses can create a living and breathing financial wellbeing strategy.
Tim Perkins, co-founder of nudge, joins Dr Stephanie Fitzgerald, a chartered clinical psychologist and senior business partner for mental health at Rolls-Royce, along with Personnel Today’s HR and wellbeing editor Ashleigh Webber to discuss:
- What HR must look out for when developing a financial wellbeing solution
- What effect Covid-19 is having on employees’ finances
- Why employees are looking to their employers for financial wellbeing support
- The signs that an employee is struggling with money
- How financial pressure affects mental health
This free 60-minute on-demand webinar, recorded on 29 April, includes a Q&A session where live viewers submitted questions to our panel.
