For employers only

At Aegon, we’re taking part in Talk Money Week to help you get talking about money with your employees – whether it’s about managing their savings, discussing pension related queries or even chatting about how the coronavirus has impacted their financial situation.

Talk Money Week is an annual campaign, run by the Money and Pension Service (MaPS), which launches on the 9th November 2020.

This is a great opportunity for you to join, start or lead the conversation with your employees on all things money – so make sure to encourage your employees to get involved. Talk Money Week can help support you with these conversations as outlined in the participation pack – but we should remember to keep having these conversations all year round.

Even though most of us don’t like talking about our money habits – by doing so, you could help your employees financial wellbeing. When we talk about financial wellbeing, we refer to how people feel about the control they have over their financial future – and their relationship with money. That includes their ability to respond to financial unpredictability and unexpected expenses.

People with healthy financial wellbeing can meet their long-term financial goals and make informed choices that allow them to enjoy a meaningful life – both now and in retirement.

From the 9th November we’ll be talking about:

  • Getting your affairs in order – help your employees take control of their savings to help put them on the path of achieving a lifetime of financial security.
  • Financial wellbeing – how you can help your employees achieve a lifetime of financial security.
  • Pension scams – find out what to look for and how to protect yourself and your employees from illegal activities.
  • Advice makes sense – understand the common misconceptions about advice and how a financial adviser could help improve your employees’ financial wellbeing.

MaPS have also provided helpful guides on how to start conversations about money which your employees may find useful – such as talking about money with friends and family, protection against financial abuse and how to overcome money problems and poor mental wellbeing.

By having these conversations, your employees may feel more confident with managing their savings, and it might bring some peace of mind especially during these challenging times.

So, make sure to look out for our social media posts to find all the content you need – and you can also join in the conversation by using #TalkMoney.
