How to optimise your wellbeing through the cost-of-living crisis

Is the cost of living making you feel stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed? This is entirely normal, and we need to be conscious that we all face difficult times, and economic crisis impacts everyone in the community. Feeling uncertain about the future, loss of income, inability to pay bills, inflation, and unemployment are some key causes that affect our overall health. But, taking care of our mental and physical health is absolutely key in order to be resilient and successfully get through it. A recent YouGov poll commissioned by the Royal College of Physicians found that 55% of people asked about the cost-of-living crisis felt rising costs had negatively affected their health. Moreover, the latest Inflation Nation report from the Yorkshire Building Society reports that more than 67% of adults are concerned by the impact of the cost-of-living crisis, with almost half (46%) reporting a deterioration in their mental health as a result.

Financial wellbeing is making serious headway in the world of what it means to be employed – but why is this?

Employee benefits are generally non-cash provisions within a company’s reward package that are used for myriad reasons, but, most notably, as a strategic tool to encourage team retention and employee attraction, enhance recruitment, promote key behaviours, and improve wellbeing. Interestingly, the concept of providing employee benefits is sometimes referred to as ‘paternalism’ due to an overriding belief that employers have a duty of care to their employees. Employee rewards and benefits can be traced back to Roman times when funeral costs were covered by burial clubs in addition to the provision of financial support for family members.
