Financial wellbeing in the workplace

We believe financial wellbeing is not about having the most money but it’s about having enough money to enjoy the things in life that make you happy.

It’s about feeling in control, having financial freedom and prioritising what’s important to you.

41% of workers are concerned about the variability of their income from month to month*

27% of workers admit that money worries impact their performance at work*

48% of UK adults feel regularly or occasionally stressed due to their financial situation*

What we can do for you:

Why it is important to normalise the conversation about money for your employees

If done correctly, an effective wellbeing strategy can have positive impacts for staff and their employers, but how can companies create one that has a positive impact on the lives of their employees as opposed to a tick box exercise?

The support we offer is designed to:

  • Attract and retain key employees within your business

  • Improve understanding of what can be seen as complex topics

  • Give people the confidence to engage with their finances regularly and make a plan

  • Play a part in your long-term wellbeing strategy and deliver employee value.

We’ll help you understand the importance of financial advice and share tips and information on how you could achieve financial wellbeing.

We’ve created a financial wellbeing guide which is a practical document containing some key activities with the aim of supporting your understanding of finances.

When you’re ready to speak to an adviser, or if you need to ask specific questions relating to your personal financial circumstances, we offer a free, no obligation conversation. This is a great opportunity for you to ask any questions relating to your finances and for us to understand whether or not financial advice is the right fit for you, or whether we can signpost you to further support.

Your adviser will provide details of the specific products and solutions recommended, their benefits to you, together with any associated risks, and their fees and charges.

How we can help

Protecting you and your family

Many families would find it challenging to cope if a loved one became seriously ill or died. Not only would it be physically and emotionally devastating, but equally the financial implications could be distressing for those left behind.

Fortunately, there are financial protection products that can help alleviate stresses and worries that are inevitable during difficult times.

The protection range that we offer at Schroders Personal Wealth is designed to provide a choice of benefits depending on your needs. We’ll help you to make sense of different types of protection products with the aim of limiting the financial impact for you and your loved ones at a time when you need it the most.

Products we can advise on:

  • Life and term assurance

  • Critical illness cover

  • Income protection

These protection policies have no cash-in value at any time. If you don't pay your premiums on time your cover will stop, your benefits will end, and you'll get nothing back. If the benefit amount has not been paid out by the end of the selected term, the policy will end and you'll get nothing back.
