This Episode: Financial Wellbeing – with Phill Holdsworth

Lucinda talks to Phill Holdsworth of Aurun Gold Ltd, who are dedicated to taking the anxiety out of money, about financial wellbeing – how it’s becoming even more of a concern with the recent rise is the cost of living, and what we can do to improve things for our people so as to best ensure that they do not have to bring their anxieties to the workplace.

Key Takeaways

  • Wellbeing is the holistic view of a person, including physical, mental and financial. One always affects the other, and so if something is wrong it can lead to a downturn in productivity and engagement.
  • If you do support your workforce with issues surrounding wellbeing, you can increase engagement and loyalty by caring for financial wellbeing. This also prevents the revolving door syndrome.
  • If people aren’t facing up to their financial obligations or struggling against the rising costs, we can’t take the attitude that it’s necessarily their fault, or that they are lacking in some way. People simply become overwhelmed.
  • Simply raising salaries so as to provide more income does not solve people’s anxieties around money. If they have more money, they will still worry. We need to understand the root psychological cause behind this.
