Our financial advice surgeries deliver personalised one to one advice in the workplace, and they cover important work related and personal financial issues.
Regular surveys of UK employees show that money worries are the single biggest cause of stress and disruption in the workplace. This is damaging to business as it often leads to staff sickness, poor engagement and personal underperformance.
Our financial advice surgeries are designed to address this, as they deliver personalised one to one advice where it is needed. They cover all the main financial planning areas which will generally focus on personal finances and company specific benefits such company pension, death in service etc.
Communication helps to maintain a good relationship between employer and employee. Good relationships improve productivity, quality and maintain a stable long-term workforce. Most employees have access to benefits that they have little understanding of. In addition, there are times, that due to restructuring, changes to those benefits are required and these changes need to be sensitively communicated.
We can help with any of your communication needs regarding the financial benefits you provide to your employees. We do this by holding onsite or offsite surgeries which provide personal and employer related advice and guidance to those who attend, and we encourage dialogue and engagement with workers to help them plan well for their financial future and the future of their loved ones.
We understand and respect that most employers will want to offer surgeries to employees where the content and advice is mainly restricted to work related benefits. It is also understood that most surgeries will involve employees taking time away from their duties which the employer will want to keep to a minimum whilst still being sympathetic to the needs of the individual.
To avoid employees taking up surgery time to discuss non-work-related financial advice issues i.e., wholly personal finances, we produce an agenda which outlines the surgery subjects to be covered with a clear instruction that non-work-related financial advice can only be given offsite and, in the employees, own time.
94% of UK employees admit to worrying about money and, of these, 77% say that money worries impact them at work.
