This workshop will provide managers and supervisors of staff with practical skills to recognise when an employee’s financial situation may be affecting their work and how to approach the issue with that person.  It will also provide information on the local sources of support that their employees may be able to access.

Learning outcomes:

By the end of this course participants will have:

  • Increased their confidence to discuss financial difficulties
  • An understanding on the impact of financial difficulties can have on employment
  • Increased their knowledge and awareness around what advice and support is available to people experiencing financial difficulties

Who should attend?

This course is relevant to all managers and supervisors of staff in Fife.  Anyone can be affected by poverty, not just those on low pay, and evidence shows that an increasing number of households experiencing financial hardship have at least one adult in employment.

Money worries can affect people’s work in many ways, including absence rates and performance.  This course will help you to recognise and address this issue with members of staff.
