Could your financial wellbeing programme be undermining diversity and inclusivity?

Life is unfair and in large, this is because the personal finance ecosystem does not work equally for all people. The advice gap, the poverty premium, nepotism, the loyalty penalty are all examples of this inequity. But a proactive relationship with money is critical, so the personal finance ecosystem needs to work for everyone for it to be inclusive, not exclusive.

Employers are uniquely placed to solve this problem. They can put in place workplace financial wellbeing offerings that get to the crux of the issue. Not just by providing financial benefits that cater to all employees – but also ensuring each employee has the skills and knowledge tailored to them as individuals to maximise this support and take control of their finances.

In this webinar you will hear from forward thinking employers (details to follow soon) on how to apply new thinking and actions to your strategy to create a truly diverse and inclusive financial wellbeing programme.

Panel includes:

  • Lorna MacMillan, Global Head of Benefits, A.P. Moller – Maersk
  • Ian Shannon, Total Rewards Manager, Vertex Pharmaceuticals
  • Tim Perkins, Co-founder, nudge
  • Chaired by REBA's Co-founder and Director, Debi O'Donovan

Key issues to be explored:

  • In what ways is the financial system in the wider world exclusive, and what does this mean for workplace financial wellbeing?
  • What needs to change to include all your employees and workers?
  • What would a financial wellbeing programme with supported diversity look like, what would it include and who could it appeal to?
  • How can focusing on the inclusivity of a workplace financial wellbeing programme support internal DEI objectives, as well as external CSR and ESG targets.
