New research into employee wellbeing in the financial sector.
“Bank on Your People”, new research into employee wellbeing in the financial sector conducted by the Bank Workers Charity in partnership with Robertson Cooper has identified the work and non-work factors that affect employees from the financial sector.
The findings show that financial worries, caring responsibilities and concerns about the future are all significant home-life factors that affect performance at work. The research also identifies workplace causes of both ill-health and reduced productivity.
Results show that 60% of respondents suffered from poor quality of sleep and 40% were worried by financial circumstances. This research also reveals that 3% of respondents belong to the “sandwich” generation, having to take care of an elderly relative whilst also having childcare responsibilities.
Having to juggle these responsibilities with working in a demanding sector can often translate into health and wellbeing problems for employees.
“Bank on Your People” shows that organisations need to take a whole person approach to health and wellbeing, addressing both the work and non-work issues in order to achieve sustainable employee performance and positive wellbeing.
