WHAT IS FINANCIAL WELLBEING?

Everybody experiences stress in the workplace at one point or another, but when financial worries are a constant factor in your life it can be devastating to your productivity and mental wellbeing.


HOW CAN POOR FINANCIAL WELLBEING AFFECT YOU?

When you’re suffering from money worries, there can be a number of direct and indirect reactions.

Reduced motivation in the workplace might result from a lack of financial wellbeing, as you can feel undervalued, distracted, and hopeless. Financial wellbeing can also contribute to severe mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, and high-stress levels. Money-related stress can be a trigger for these conditions, all of which can drastically affect your ability to work happily and productively.

At its worst, poor financial wellbeing can affect your physical health as you may struggle to purchase the medication you require, pay for gym memberships, or even pay for food for yourself and your family.
