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.
