Prudential gives staff a day to resolve their finances

Prudential
is to give its staff a day off each year to sort out their personal finances.

The
offer of a day off will be open to all 8,000 Prudential staff in the UK, and
starts next year.

The
insurer said one of the reasons for the country’s £27bn ‘savings gap’ is that
few people wanted to spend their holiday time or evenings sorting out their
personal finances.

Prudential
staff will be allowed to use an intranet site on financial planning information
and tools, as well as in-house seminars for workers and, if possible, their
partners.

But
they can also use the time to visit their bank or building society or use the
office’s telephone, internet and computer facilities to resolve their finances.
