Social mobility is the worst it’s been in the UK for 50 years. When we think about social mobility, much of the conversation is around the role of education and schools (and rightly so!). But there’s so much more we can do within the workplace to cultivate an inclusive, supportive environment that boosts financial confidence for your employees.
Over the past few months, we’ve been speaking with lots of businesses (from universities to investment firms, and everything in-between) about tangible ways we can improve social mobility in our workplaces.
Join Octopus Money for this insightful webinar, when you’ll learn how to become an employer of choice through social mobility strategy, with guidance from the organisations that are leading the way.
Our panel will discuss:
The importance of storytelling and exec representation to encourage positive conversations and interactions
How a financial safety net (or lack of one) can affect our career paths and attitude to risk
How strong financial wellbeing will drive higher employee engagement and retention
Ways to ensure a level playing field during promotions, pay rises and other important career moments
How different employees may view pensions depending on their background, and how we can address that
