Day: Wednesday 14 October 2020

Time: 1:50pm – 2:10pm AEDT

Abstract:

The saying, “the whole is greater than the sum of the parts” summarises the benefits enjoyed by workplaces that have well-planned, ongoing workplace health and wellbeing programs, as opposed to those that just select an individual component now and then. Redefining and providing a meaningful employee experience is the new mandate for every organisation. People are your biggest asset, which is why it is integral to have the right resources in place to be able to provide the right level of wellbeing support when someone really needs it. Through working closely with our employers, we have seen just how much financial stress impacts staff wellbeing including both physical and mental health. If left unchecked, prolonged financial stress can lead to increased OHS incidents, sick leave and poorer levels of mental health overall. There are numerous strategies employers can utilise to constructively manage the challenges and opportunities posed beyond COVID-19.

Based on our data-led insights, we know that a holistic approach to wellbeing, that includes financial wellbeing, is a fundamental ingredient to increasing productivity, staff retention and helping staff feel motivated and engaged. As part of our promise to be a ‘force for good’ and support employers, First State Super has created short, engaging, awareness-raising webinar series aimed at helping employees to be more financial capable and professionally resilient, particularly in uncertain times. Each webinar has been designed to not only provide your staff with the relevant information but deliver them with a simple and practical toolkit to help them navigate both their financial and professional future. This session will explore how this program can fit into your employee value proposition and why this has become a valued competent of an employer staff retention program.
