Money can contribute to our worries at the best of times.
But this winter - what with the ongoing recession, rising energy bills, and the media fanning the flames of panic – it’s safe to say that money will be a major source of stress and anxiety for many.
Right now, workplaces have the opportunity to provide wellbeing support that individuals can’t otherwise afford. Though businesses, who are liable to be feeling the effects of the recession too, are unlikely to be in a position to offer mass pay rises to help tide staff over this winter, they can, amongst other things, help support their employees’ sense of financial wellbeing.
Financial wellbeing is here defined as feeling informed and in control of your finances; self-assured that you have enough to meet your needs, whatever those needs may be.
This toolkit is designed to contribute to your employees’ sense of financial wellbeing. It offers some simple advice on budgeting, explanations on how money and mental health feed into one another, and signposts further financial supports.
Luminate also offer Financial Wellbeing workshops that cover a range of subjects in this area, including Money and mental health, Budgeting and planning for financial wellbeing, and Managing credit and borrowing. Get in touch to find out more.
