Financial wellbeing webinar
07 June 2017
Workplace savings and benefits hosted a debate on the impact of financial stress on health and can now be listened to on demand.
WSB talk about how this issue is increasingly being recognised by employers, who are concerned about the number of individuals experiencing debt and money problems – issues that often make their way back into the workplace in the form of lower productivity, stress and sickness absence.
The difficulties of balancing the often competing demands of the workplace and our personal lives can, inevitably, leave even the most organised and competent people feeling unable to cope.
In addition, this financial stress can compound other issues – with many employees facing financial difficulty as a result of ill-health, because they do not have sufficient savings to cover time off work due to ill-health, and have no protection in place in the form of sick pay insurance or income protection.
A WSB webinar held in May 2017 looked at the impact of financial stress on health and ask what employers should be doing to support employee financial wellbeing.
