WORKPLACE FINANCIAL EDUCATION
We aim to empower your employees to make confident financial decisions
Money is a stressful issue for many people; if you help to educate your employees to deal with their money matters then this is likely to result in a less stressed and more productive workforce.
What is workplace financial education?
Workplace financial education is providing your employees time to talk with a trusted financial adviser to give them a greater understanding of their finances and allowing them to make informed decisions. This demonstrates that you care about the financial wellbeing of your employees and can be considered as an employee benefit in its own right.
Why offer financial education to your employees?
Many employers want to ensure that their employees understand their finances, employee benefits and how to make the most of them.
Providing a retirement package to employees is now a requirement for most employers due to auto-enrolment. However, most employees are uncertain about how to prepare for retirement. They have to choose how much to contribute into their own pension pot, make their own investment choices, decide when to retire and navigate tax rules and allowances.
Providing a quality Financial Education Workshop, will overcome this uncertainty and empower your employees to maximise the potential of their pension pots.
How our workplace financial education scheme works
We want to create greater financial certainty for your people. We achieve this by running a Workshop at your workplace. These can be for all of your employees or for a group that you select. They typically last for about an hour.
If you have a larger company, we can run a series of interactive seminars to target different segments of the workforce to increase engagement. Seminars can be focused around life-stages and/or specific topics such as retirement planning.
A scheme tailored to your company
The needs of every organisation are different and we will create a financial education programme tailored to your company and employees.
We aim to provide education to support employees throughout their lives and inspire them to take control and make decisions to enhance their financial well-being by simplifying complex financial matters.
The value of a pension with St. James’s Place will be directly linked to the performance of the funds you select and the value can therefore go down as well as up. You may get back less than invested.
The levels and bases of taxation and reliefs from taxation can change at any time. The value of any tax relief depends on individual circumstances.
