Access to financial education is one of several benefits being increasingly demanded of employers, according to a survey by global professional services firm Aon.
The company's Benefits and Trends Survey 2019 also shows that 76 per cent of employers agree or strongly agree that the employer is responsible for influencing employee health and changing behaviours.
It also reveals that 24.5 per cent of companies say they have a clear Employee Value Proposition (EPV), but 51 per cent are now planning to develop one.
More than half (53 per cent) of respondents say employee benefits engagement is extremely important, yet 70 per cent spend less than £5,000 on communications efforts.
The survey is now in its ninth year and draws on the responses of more than 200 participants across a broad range of sectors, representing employers with fewer than 100 employees to those with many thousands.
