The UK’s Premier Event for Mental Health & Wellbeing Leaders

In today’s episode, we’re shining a spotlight on a critical issue – financial well-being in the midst of the cost of living crisis. We’ll be discussing five red flags that may indicate your employees are facing financial challenges, and we have a panel of experts ready to shed light on these crucial matters.

Segment 1: You Don’t Have the Data

  • Our first red flag points to the importance of data. Without accurate and up-to-date information on your employees’ financial well-being, it’s challenging to take meaningful action. Our experts will discuss the significance of collecting data and ways to do it effectively.

Segment 2: No One Is Talking About It

  • In this segment, we tackle the issue of silence. Often, financial struggles go unspoken, and as a result, they can escalate. We explore the role of open communication and how fostering a safe space for employees to discuss their financial concerns can make a significant difference.

Segment 3: Treating Symptoms, Not the Problem

  • One of the red flags that often goes unnoticed is treating symptoms rather than addressing the root causes of financial stress. We’ll delve into the importance of identifying and solving underlying issues rather than just providing quick fixes.

Segment 4: Poorly Communicating Benefits

  • The benefits and support offered by employers can be a lifeline for employees facing financial challenges. However, if these benefits aren’t effectively communicated, they might as well not exist. We’ll discuss strategies for clear and effective communication.

Segment 5: Not Linking to Learning and Development

  • Our final red flag suggests that learning and development opportunities can play a crucial role in improving financial well-being. We’ll explore how aligning these opportunities with your employees’ financial goals can have a positive impact.


In conclusion, financial well-being is not just a personal concern; it’s a critical factor in employee satisfaction and overall business success. By paying attention to these five red flags, you can protect the financial well-being of your employees and foster a workplace culture that truly cares.

Stay tuned for some invaluable insights from our expert panel.
