The Employee Benefits Awards 2014 have revamped the category for Best financial education strategy to recognise employers’ outstanding work in supporting staff with financial, retirement or investment-related decisions.
This award will recognise an employer that has taken a proactive approach to its workforce’s financial needs.
The winning organisation may have: brought in financial advisers for one-to-one meetings; run financial seminars or workshops; installed financial modelling programmes on the intranet or internet; provided pre-retirement education; offered staff time off work to sort out personal financial affairs; offered workplace savings benefits outside of the pension scheme; or held themed events to encourage staff to think about financial matters.
In 2013, Hymans Robertson (pictured) won the award for Best workplace savings benefits (which preceeded this year’s awards category) for its holistic approach to financial benefits and education, which enable staff to make the most of their money.
The entry deadline for the Employee Benefits Awards 2014 is 17 January.
