We recognise that employees with financial worries are more likely to have sleepless nights, not finish their daily tasks and to have troubled relationships with colleagues. There is a clear link between financial and emotional wellbeing. We understand that by offering support in relation to the financial wellbeing of our employees we are likely in many cases to address the source of sub-optimal levels of emotional wellbeing.
Financial wellbeing is how people feel about the control they have over their financial future - and their relationship with money. It's about focusing on the things that make their life enjoyable and meaningful both now and in retirement.
At RWT we recognise the importance of supporting and promoting good levels of financial wellbeing. Within this section you will find information about how the Trusts Health & Wellbeing Offer can help to support your financial wellbeing. Please click through to see what’s on offer!
