Event description

Description

With mental health high in public consciousness, more and more employers are realising the importance of their role in safeguarding employees’ wellbeing at work. An important – but sometimes overlooked – aspect is employee financial wellbeing. It’s well documented that underlying symptoms of financial stress among your workforce can lead to sickness absence or reduced staff productivity.

For many reasons, it makes sense for responsible employers to pay attention to improving employee financial resilience.

On Wednesday 14 March, 08:00 - 10:00, Capital Law will be co-hosting a business breakfast with Cardiff & Vale Credit Union.

A variety of speakers will talk about supporting financial wellbeing as a responsible employer. Confirmed speakers include:
