The report shows that nearly a third (32.2%) of employers already offer it. A similar amount (28.4%) plan to introduce it this year and a further one in five (20.4%) plan to introduce it at some point. Only 19% of respondents to the survey for the report said that they had no plans to introduce financial education.

“This is a continuing theme in our research,” said Debi O’Donovan, director at the Reward & Employee Benefits Association. “Our New Model Reward Research 2017 showed it was growing in popularity and this latest report reinforces that point. Financial education is no longer just about retirement planning but is becoming a core pillar in combatting stress amongst employees to ensure that they can work without the burden of financial worries affecting mood and productivity,” she said.
