Chamber Digital - Supporting your staff’s financial health now and in the future
Chamber Digital Webinar sessions will enable you to hear from an expert in their field sharing best practice, knowledge and experience. During this period of uncertainty our aim is to keep businesses moving and talking.
This is a digital roundtable discussion.
Join the cross-party think tank Demos and special guests from South Yorkshire businesses for an interactive online session about how employers can help boost their staff’s financial resilience and well-being in these challenging times.
The impact of coronavirus (Covid-19) is causing uncertainty for everyone and presenting new challenges on an almost daily basis. For businesses and their employees, financial resilience and staff welfare are important considerations but it can be difficult to know where to start with so many pressing issues competing for attention.
Colleagues who are worried about money and debt are likely to find it affects their work and wellbeing. Luckily there are simple yet practical ways that you can support them in both the short and longer term, at little or no cost to your business.
This webinar will offer practical guidance to help employers, large or small, to support their staff’s financial health during and beyond the Covid-19 crisis. There’ll also be opportunities to share your experiences, and the challenges and solutions you might have found.
You may not instantly recognise that you’re helping staff to cut their costs. But if you’ve introduced measures that save them money, such as staff rewards, discounts, subsidies or incentives, there’s a good chance that you are.
So please bring your views, ideas and success stories to the table to help and inspire others. It’s an opportunity to share learning and identify best practice to tackle some of the challenges that affect us all.
Demos is working with South Yorkshire Mayor Dan Jarvis and stakeholders across the region to deliver the Good Credit Project – designed to reduce the need for high-cost borrowing and extend the reach of better options – and businesses can play a part.
