  • How the concept of financial wellbeing has changed since the start of the coronavirus crisis: the role of pay as well as benefits and services.
  • What services, benefits and tactics are employers offering to working and furloughed employees?
  • Are workplace loans such as for hardship or to support homeworking a good or bad idea? Is there another way?
  • Identifying your most financially vulnerable employees, and ensuring you do not discriminate against particular groups such as women, the disabled or younger staff.
  • Can you support staff on furlough?
  • Can you help Zero Hours employees, contractors and gig workers in your organisation with their financial wellbeing?
  • How to communicate financial wellbeing to staff out on the front line or working from home
  • Is there an opportunity to encourage savings in share schemes, ISAs, pensions among staff spending less than usual during lockdown?
