Did you know that 53% of Australian employees say that stress from cost of living increases is negatively impacting their work? Unfortunately, only a third of Aussie HR managers feel they are well-equipped to support the financial wellbeing of employees.
With high inflation and rising interest rates, Australians are set to see greater cost of living pressures this holiday season, impacting their productivity and engagement.

Below, we've pulled together some resources to help you make an immediate impact this holiday season and reduce cost of living pressures to boost your engagement and retention goals, both during the festive season and into 2024.
