Roundtable: With societal and financial insecurities on the rise: How do you ensure the vitality and financial stability of your employees
Financial challenges like high inflation, depths, the energy and housing crisis can cause stress for many people. And this financial stress can affect health, happiness, and performance. Financial burdens take an emotional toll.
To reduce or even prevent this stress, good guidance and information are important. When people are better prepared for what is or could be coming, they withstand certain setbacks better too.
It doesn't make it easier that money is mostly taboo, it is a difficult subject for both employee and employer. An employee will not quickly report if he/she has financial problems.

Preventing is better than curing.
