A recent survey uncovered that UK employers are struggling to keep up with employee demand for financial wellness support1.
This is particularly poignant in light of the OECD issuing a warning over increasing household debt and against a backdrop of stagnant wage growth and escalating inflation.
Employees are looking to their employers for support in achieving their personal financial goals.
Over 40% of employees would appreciate greater employer support towards saving for a holiday and buying a house, yet just 12% and 4% respectively feel that they are supported by their organisations to reach these goals.
It’s then not surprising to see that only 10% of UK employers currently have a financial wellness strategy in place.
While almost all employers offer pensions plans and life assurance, very few offer the kind of support that can improve employees’ current financial situations.
42% of employers expressed concern over the risk of getting too involved in employees affairs1
of employee respondents who are approaching retirement in the next 10 years plan to use their workplace pension for their retirement income, according to research by Age Partnership.
of employers are unsure about how much financial support, beyond madatory salary and pensions, they should provide1
of respondents are concerned about the costs of elderly care and the lack of funding for this1
of employers are worried about the cost of scheme implementation1
