As this latest research shows, over 75% of employers are seeing a growing demand from their staff for financial education.

They cite the main reason as employees' continuing concerns  with regard to increased uncertainty for their future, particularly in dealing with the risks involved in managing a defined contribution pension pot. Other key factors reported were pensions auto-enrolment, reductions to the lifetime and annual allowances and the introduction of pension freedoms.

These concerns and many others relating to making the most of workplace benefits and the requirement to improve financial wellbeing have been growing year on year. This evidence adds more weight to employers urging them to put financial education up their priority lists and to ensure it doesn't only focus on pensions but wider financial wellbeing.
