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.
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.

What our clients say
Financial Education, Victoria Fletcher,
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.
