Financial wellbeing is a journey, and your initial steps in offering practical support to employees will prove effective immediately. When the time is right for your business, you can move naturally towards other possibilities for example helping workers save directly through payroll. My role is to help you take those steps sustainably.
As households experience income shocks through redundancies or pay cuts, being armed with proper knowledge of lending is vital. Money worries are the biggest cause of stress for workers and damaging for business too however embedding financial education communication campaigns and resources will ensure your employees have support and guidance that they can avail of, at their convenience. Financial education teaches individuals basic skills like budgeting and saving – but it also teaches people how to borrow money safely and effectively.
I’m also particularly interested to work with organisations helping young people. We know that introducing financial education from an early age provides positive financial habits and embeds a solid platform to help guide people throughout their lifetime.
My hope is that the current difficult circumstances will help us lay the foundations to build a sustainable financial future for Northern Ireland. MaPS is here to help – so please do get in touch with me.
