Wellbeing & productivity in the financial sector

Read our validated research results into work and non-work pressures of bank workers and how these affect their wellbeing and performance at work.

In late 2013 we launched the results of our groundbreaking research into the lives of bank workers. 

This research looked at the work and non-work factors that affected bank workers and the impact that these factors have on wellbeing and performance at work.

We have since validated this research with a much larger study. 

The new findings show that financial worries, caring responsibilities and concerns about the future are all significant home-life factors that affect performance at work.  The research also identifies workplace causes of both ill-health and reduced productivity. 

As with the initial study, four bank worker types have emerged which look at the employee’s work-life balance and their engagement levels. 

This research concludes that a whole-person approach to health and wellbeing is needed in order to be able to provide an integrated and tailored support package to employees to improve wellbeing and sustainable performance. 

Our Head of Wellbeing, Paul Barrett, has written an article for HR Zone on our research findings which may provide further insight.
