Time to Talk Day

Is it time to undo the money taboo?

Time to talk day exists to help us break down the stigma that surrounds mental health, and after a turbulent year, financial concerns are now the No.1 cause of stress for employees.

Our financial wellbeing is still the elephant in the room. Something that’s affecting everyone, but something very few of us are talking about

Join special guests from Champion Health and Towergate on Wednesday 1 February at 11am as we discuss psychological safety, mental health, and financial wellbeing, while exploring how we can normalise the conversation so the right support can reach the right people at the right time.

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 Cost of Living situation creating a lot of uncertainty, normalising the conversation around our finances has never been more important.

During this session, our expert panel we will discussing:

  • Why money is such a taboo subject
  • The link between financial wellbeing and mental wellbeing
  • Why now is the time to talk about this problem
  • What organisations can do about it
  • And why psychological safety is the key

    The Cost of Living is continuing to rise, with employees increasingly worried and unsure where to turn. The truth is, it can be hard to talk about money. With the reasons ranging from fear of discrimination, and feelings of shame, to a lack of trust. At the same time, businesses everywhere are coming under increasing pressure to adjust their compensation and support, at a time when costs are increasing for them as well. 

    HR professionals and business leaders are faced with a lot of questions right now. Such as, how can we support employee 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? And is it a case of introducing more effective, and more personalised support, or simply of maintaining our existing policies?

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

    This means that compensation is no longer just a number, but rather a culture of care.

    The good news is that financial wellbeing, and effective mental health support, can help employees make the most out of their salary, while feeling more settled and secure at their company.
