Financial wellbeing: breaking down the last taboo
Money is one of those things it can be difficult to talk about. There’s a cultural taboo that can make us hesitant to talk about our financial wellbeing – but sadly, this means many people are left suffering in silence.

This article by Joe Marshall, Associate Editor at CBI, explores ways employers can make financial wellbeing part of your workplace conversation. It includes a case study from Close Brothers, and explores how they created resources for their employees who needed some support right now, or who might in the future.
