Consultancy

We listen to you and build personalised solutions based on our understanding of your needs, your business and your workforce. We can help you to create an education program to improve employee wellbeing and lessen the people risks that can have a significant impact on your business.

Face-to-face workshops

We offer set modules on a variety of financial topics or we can create an education program specifically for your employees. Financial education in the workplace provides your employees with the tools and knowledge to plan effectively for the future. Our sole focus during the workshops is educating and supporting your employees, we do not promote our personal products and services.

E-learning

We offer online training to complement our face-to-face workshops or as a stand-alone education tool. Our Financial Essentials and Planning for Retirement online courses use e-learning technology to provide interactive and enjoyable learning experiences. Employees can complete these in their own time, at their own pace.

Retirement planning

Employees don’t reach an exact age and leave your company. They need to consider all of the options available in detail and prepare themselves for the transition into life after work. If you have employees who are nearing retirement, help them prepare for the retirement that they want and ease the transition from working life into life after work.

Salary Exchange
