Against an ever-changing socio-economic backdrop, understanding the attitudes and actions of the global workforce is becoming more important than ever.

This challenging environment is seeing employees increasingly looking to their employers for support in a wide range of areas, including their well-being and broader financial lives.

There is a significant opportunity for employers to continue and/or expand flexible work options and other benefits, including mental health support, to drive employee engagement and productivity.

Employers are also well positioned to play a key role in boosting financial knowledge and confidence across their working population, potentially providing access to valuable information to those who need it most.

In addition to the kinds of support wanted, we look at some of the trends in workers attitudes and actions across the areas of well-being, financial habits, retirement and work and some actions employers could consider to address key issues.
