Financial Education

Why do you need to think about financial education?

Nearly half (46%) of employees spend two to three hours per working week dealing with personal finances1 while 25% admit money worries have negatively impacted productivity2. Almost one in ten have taken time off work to deal with their financial matters3.

Financial Education can help you combat key people risks such as:

  • Employee absence
    Absence costs your business. When an employee is unexpectedly away from work your staff can be disrupted which in turn can affect productivity.
  • Staff turnover
    Employees who feel their income isn’t working for them will often search for new jobs to move up the pay scale. The cost of recruitment is significant.    
  • Productivity
    Employees who are worried about money problems are likely to be distracted at work. On top of this, money worries can cause sleepless nights which can lead to reduced performance at work.

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. Our education provides your employees with the tools and knowledge to plan effectively for the future. Unlike other education providers we do not include details of any of the personal products and services we offer.

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.

What our clients say

Financial Education, Victoria Fletcher,
Hachette UK

This is the first time we’ve offered a financial education course to such a segmented part of our workforce, and the results have been really positive. The pre and post survey feedback has really demonstrated that employees prefer to receive financial education with their immediate peers as it can be better targeted and therefore more beneficial.
