EXCLUSIVE: Natalie Jutla, employee value proposition and employee benefits lead for the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), will be giving a presentation about financial wellbeing on Thursday 7 October at Employee Benefits Live 2021.
The session titled ‘Developing effective financial wellbeing schemes’ will be taking place on the second day of the conference. It will focus on what financial capability is and why it is needed in the workplace, embedding and maintaining a financial capability culture, and the financial impact of challenging times on the workforce.
The presentation will provide delegates with an opportunity for high-level, future-focused discourse, as well as practical learnings from both Jutla’s and Defra’s experience.
“I will be talking about how to understand the positive and negative financial impacts of your workforce during the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, explore financial capability and why it is so important, and the return on investment an informed financial capability strategy can have for the business,” she said.
Jutla explained that she believes attendees can use her session to widen their knowledge on how varying financial capabilities can impact a business and employees.
“Delegates can gain a better understanding of the different perspectives of financial capability and I will provide seven takeaways on how to make a financial capability strategy successful,” she said.
