Stopping the Stigma

How can we normalise talking about money?

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

But how can we normalise the conversation around money, and what can be done to create psychological safety in our organisations, so employees receive the support they need? 

To explore this topic, join Bippit alongside special guests from Self Space, Evelyn Partners, and Conversation of Money on Tuesday 28th March at 11am as we discuss the stigma of financial stress, why it’s so hard to talk about money, and how we can build cultures at work so the right support reaches the right people at the right time.

Despite the progress that’s been made in recent years around mental health in the workplace, financial stress remains the elephant in the room.

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 will be discussing:

  • Why money is such a sensitive subject
  • The link between financial wellbeing and mental wellbeing
  • How organisations can support their people
  • Why now is the right time to talk about this problem
  • How to create psychological safety
  • And why culture comes from the top

      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 refining 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. Join Bippit and some special guests as we tackle these topics and more…
