People across the UK are currently facing new financial concerns as the cost of living continues to increase. A recent study revealed that four in ten UK employees listed money as their biggest worry, and 65% of respondents would like more financial support from their employers.
As employees scramble to keep up with increasing costs, many are looking to move employers in the hopes of a chunky salary rise.
While a company-wide pay rise isn’t possible for many businesses, there are still ways employers can mitigate rising costs of living whilst keeping business costs low. Employers have an opportunity to support their employees through a challenging time and impact both employees’ and their families’ lives in a meaningful way.
Now is a great time for employers to look at their Employee Value Proposition to determine what’s working, and find areas of improvement to meet the evolving needs of employees. Consider revamping and repackaging your existing benefits, or introducing new benefits that are relevant to employees now and can significantly lower day-to-day expenses.
