HR Director Dinner Series 2018: Financial Wellbeing


Time: to

London SW1Y

Hosted by Salary Finance, this event will look at how a successful financial wellbeing programme can have a positive impact on employees and lead to improved performance at work​.

This event will discuss how a truly successful financial wellbeing programme can help employees on a path away from debt to building savings, help them learn better financial habits, and improve their financial resilience. We will share with attendees the research, best practice examples and recommendations, and then open the conversation up for a round table discussion.
Business in the Community's HR Director Dinners are a series of events designed to provide a space for human resource leads to meet with peers, hear about the latest research into relevant issues and learn about best practice in order to help their organisations become leaders in developing more inclusive work environments and happier and healthier workplace cultures. This event is being hosted by Salary Finance.
A study by the Money Advice Service (MAS) on closing the savings gap concluded that nearly 17 million working-age people in the UK have less than £100 in savings - that’s 40% of the working population. With the average emergency dentist bill or new washing machine cost totalling well over £200, how can the average employee handle that without turning to emergency, potentially high cost, credit? A special Financial Wellness Report by PwC from September 2017 states that the majority of an organisation’s workforce are continuously stressed over their personal finances - a striking reality, which was communicated not only by lower earners, but also by those earning over £100,000.
