Behavioural Insights & Financial Wellbeing

Improving employee wellbeing by reducing financial anxiety

The emerging science of behavioural economics is increasing our understanding of the way we make decisions. This knowledge is helping businesses develop more profitable models, regulators more effective controls and governments more efficient incentives. Unfortunately, it is used less by individuals to improve their choices.

This session will explore the role financial anxiety plays in more general mental health and the cost to individuals, businesses and society as a whole. We will go on to look at how understanding from behavioural economics can be used to help people improve their financial decisions and worry less about money.

By the end of the seminar you will have a greater insight into the surprising effectiveness of a timely gentle nudge.

What people have to say about previous events....

I cannot recommend Chadwick’s Masterclasses too highly nor say enough good things about them. Chadwick’s Masterclasses provide fresh insights and offer practical steps to build, maintain and retain value in businesses. Richard delivers clear and well-thought-out advice while challenging preconceptions. The workshops are thoroughly researched and never turn into sales presentations. I learn something every time I attend.

I have been a regular attendee at Chadwick’s business seminars for several years and without fail I have found the sessions to be useful and practical on the one hand whilst thought provoking and inspiring on the other. Many advisers can put on topical seminars, few can make you feel that you want to go on to study the subject yourself!
