This IES authored report offers practical advice on supporting employee financial wellbeing. The report is the result of research conducted by IES into employee financial wellbeing and is one of three reports produced as part of this project for the CIPD. IES undertook a literature review on financial wellbeing and conducted workshops with HR practitioners, policy-makers and behavioural science experts that informed the research and resulting reports.

This particular report is aimed at HR professionals and contains guidance on:

  • how to find out the type and scale of financial wellbeing problems in an organisation; 
  • building the business case to gain support from managers and colleagues to take action; 
  • possible action areas, tailored by common organisational contexts, needs and priorities; and 
  • how to measure and evaluate whether actions are making a difference.
