delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for another financial
wellbeing award – “Best Financial Wellbeing Strategy”. The event will
take place in London on 26th October 2023 at the Financial Wellbeing
Forum 2023, organised by Wagestream, and the winners will be announced after a
day of keynote speeches and breakout sessions.
Following the introduction of
Wagestream to the company in 2022, some of the key initiatives introduced over the last 12 months, which
led to us being shortlisted, include:
- The option for
employees to access a proportion of wages when needed, reducing financial
stress during emergencies.
- A company-funded
healthcare plan to alleviate medical expense concerns.
- Free independent
qualified financial advice.
- Rebranding of out
Helping Hand loans.
- A savings scheme to
give colleagues security and contingency.
We have already won an award this
year for our financial strategy, scooping the Best Support of Financial
Wellbeing Award at the Make a
Difference Awards for
2023 in April. We were one of 16 winners
from 260 entries at the Awards. The award was to recognise the steps we
have taken to support colleagues’ financial wellbeing.
It is fantastic news to be
recognised once more for our financial wellbeing tools and we have everything
crossed for the event!
