Interactive Webinar – Bridging The Gap: Championing Financial, Mental And Physical Wellbeing For Women In The Workplace

Diverse group, teamwork and young business women brainstorming, collaboration or cooperation. Ambitious confident professional team of colleagues talking and planning a marketing strategy together.
While most people’s lives have been turned upside down by the pandemic, studies show that, in many ways, women have been disproportionately affected:
  • Women are more likely to have been impacted economically by the pandemic and more likely to work in sectors suffering job losses
  • One in four women have said they are thinking about reducing or leaving paid work due to company inflexibility, caring responsibilities and stress
  • Women were the majority of those on temporary contracts (53%) and on zero-hours contracts (55%)
  • Women in mid-career – often sandwiched between child and elder care – are likely to be particularly disadvantaged

Women are crucial to our recovery from the pandemic

Highlighting the important role employers can play to redress this imbalance through proactive D&I and wellbeing programmes, Peppy will be running a free to attend, interactive Make A Difference webinar: “Bridging the gap: championing financial, mental and physical wellbeing for women in the workplace.”

  • The key women’s financial challenges that HR/line managers should be aware of
  • How financial, mental and physical wellbeing are linked
  • Ways in which women can be supported at different life stages across their career
