This webinar is open to Wellbeing Champions only.

With the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic – furloughing, the risk of redundancy and a financial depression looming – financial stress is rife.

Financial worries and uncertainties have a negative impact on mental health. However, only 5% of all employee’s report that financial support or advice is available in their workplace1.

There is a disconnect between what employers actually provide in support, compared to what employees perceive them to provide.

BITC defines “wellbeing” as the mutually supportive relationship between an individual’s mental, physical, social and financial health and their personal wellbeing.

Taking a whole organisation approach to embedding wellbeing into an organisational culture is key to achieving maximum impact. Wellbeing should be positioned as a strategic boardroom issue supporting thriving people, thriving business and thriving communities.
