52% do not provide financial education

More than half (52%) of employers do not provide any financial education to employees, according to research by, Foster Denovo’s employee benefits division, Secondsight.

However, the research also found that two-thirds (67%) of the 1,013 UK employees surveyed claim that they do not receive financial education, and 76% of those aged 55 and over, said they had not received any financial education.

Darren Laverty, Director of Sales and Marketing at Foster Denovo, said: “Clearly employee demand for financial education is not being met. Organisations need to place real emphasis on the need for financial education in the workplace; the trends are worrying. This is an excellent opportunity for employers to engage their staff and reap the benefits.
