Informed Choice Radio Personal Finance Podcast

Jan 28, 2019

The vast majority of us are suffering from money worries, with more than three quarters of employees saying money worries impact them at work.

That's according to new research from Close Brothers, who found 25 million people in the UK are affected by money worries at work and two in five employees worry about their finances always or often.

That's a huge issue and I'm pleased to welcome onto the show today Jeanette Makings, Head of Financial Education at Close Brothers.

Jeanette explains that money worries don't just affect your financial health; they are one of the single biggest causes of stress, impacting mental and physical health if left unchecked.

There's a big issue here for businesses too, with money worries resulting in lower productivity, higher absenteeism and higher staff costs; all factors which hurt business performance.

Here’s my conversation with Jeanette Making, head of financial education at Close Brothers, in episode 393 of Informed Choice Radio.
