Support your staff with financial wellbeing at a time they need is most

“Money and mental health are often linked. Poor mental health can make managing money harder and worrying about money can make mental health worse. People need advice and support for both.” Paul Farmer – CEO – Mind Charity

Mental Health Awareness Week highlighted the strong commitment UK employers clearly hold with regards Mental Health and the Wellbeing of their staff. Red Star Education works with employers to support staff specifically in terms Financial Wellbeing which research strongly highlights can make the biggest contribution to positive mental health.

70% of the UK’s workforce spend a fifth of their time at work worrying about their finances. This costs the economy around £120bn per year. 

55% of employees said that experiencing financial pressure affects their ability to perform effectively in the workplace, whilst more than 50% would value support from their employer.

A series of recent studies places financial stress as the number 1 stress for UK workers ahead of concerns for health and work-life balance. 69% employees said they feel worried / stressed about their financial situation. This is their number 1 worry.

Almost three in four Brits 74% have been so stressed at least once over the last year that they’ve felt overwhelmed or unable to cope. 32% say financial worries affect their ability to sleep on a regular basis.

Debt and mental health have closely related links in both directions. People who have debt problems are twice as likely to develop a common mental health disorder.
