Employee Wellbeing Managing money and stress over the holidays

The holidays can be an intense period to navigate for many of us. Especially at the end of an unprecedented year for our mental and financial wellbeing.

The Cost of Living has been headline news for months, the government has tied itself in knots with a series of dramatic financial u-turns, and Rishi Sunak has become the UK’s 3rd Prime Minister in as many months.

Join special guests from Bippit and Thrive on Thursday 24th November at 11am as we discuss mindfulness, stress, and budgeting through to the New Year, and how businesses can support their people.

Despite the progress that’s been made in recent years around mental health in the workplace, the vast majority of workers are still very reluctant to discuss their money worries.

The truth is, money is still a taboo subject, and with the UK government creating uncertainty around the Cost of Living, normalising the conversation around our finances has never been more important.

During this session, our expert panel we will discussing:

  • What causes stress, and how we should define it
  • The link between financial wellbeing and mental wellbeing
  • Why the holidays can be a trigger, especially for financial stress
  • How to budget and manage money over the holidays
  • Why mindfulness is so powerful to tackle these problems
  • How businesses can support their employees

    With living costs continuing to surge, employees are increasingly worried, and unsure where to turn. With the reasons ranging from fear of discrimination, and feelings of shame, to a lack of trust. At the same time, businesses everywhere are under pressure to adjust their compensation and benefits for employees, to retain their best talent and look after their people.

    The questions that are front of mind for most businesses right now are, how can we support their financial wellbeing and look after their mental health at the same time? Should salaries be increased to respond to the needs and demands of employees? Is it a case of introducing more effective, and more personalised support? Or is it simply a case of maintaining our existing policies?

    The truth is, the world of work has experienced a huge shift in recent years, with more power now lying in the hands of employees. Those searching for a new role or exploring their options now expect the best support, not just the best salary.

    This means, ensuring that compensation is not just a number, but rather a culture of care. The good news is that financial wellbeing support, and effective mental health support strategies, can help employees make the most out of their salary, and feel more settled and secure.
