When Grant Thornton surveyed Irish employees they came up with a very interesting fact: seven out of ten said that the greatest stress they suffered in or out of work was related to their finances. In other words, employees are suffering both in their personal lives and in the workplace.
How do you help your staff deal with the biggest stress they suffer ? Help them deal with their finances……the solution is both simple and inexpensive….

Introducing the Money Doctor’s Wellness Finance days
The Money Doctor will visit your company premises in arrangement with HR / company directors and consult with individual employees who require financial advice in total confidence. These one to ones are called the 20 minute Money Doctor consultation and cover the A to Z of personal finance including budgeting and planning, savings pensions & investments, mortgages, debt management, life & health cover. This is how it works :
– A Fact Find is completed by those members of staff who are looking for advice whereby they give us a picture of their financial situation. ALL financial advisers MUST comply legally with this Central Bank of Ireland directive every time they meet clients so that appropriate and personalised recommendations, solutions and action plans can be prepared and given at consultations.
– The employee may return the completed Fact Find to us prior to the consultation day, the Wellness Finance day. This means we can go straight to the heart of the issues without the waffle.
– Alternatively, members of staff can bring their completed Fact Find into the actual consultation appointment with them and based on the content, the Money Doctor will review and prescribe if necessary. If further time is required, that can be agreed with the member of staff outside of company time.
– After and arising from the consultation, a short follow-up email with fact sheets, spread sheets and other documents that may be pertinent and very helpful to those seeking advice will be sent out within 48 hours….

What They Say
“John gave a great presentation on personal finances to our Springboard+ Enterprise programme this week. The talk was well presented and the feedback was excellent. Our participants went away with a very useful handout and practical tips such as do a weekly and monthly personal finance budget. I recommend the Money Doctor to those starting a business.”
“John met with our Irish team post-budget to conduct a seminar on Surviving the recession – simple steps to transform your finances, giving them valuable financial insights and enabling them to structure and budget their own finances. He also completed one-to-one financial consultations with our team members on the day and provided them with insightful feedback in the form of a “financial prescription”. John was able to provide our team members with the Money Doctor Finance Annual to further enable their financial education. In particular the Seminar/Financial Prescription/Finance Annual format is one that can work really well in any organisation. Given the financial pressures currently on employees in Ireland I would strongly recommend that organisations work with John to inform, educate and ultimately empower staff to contribute to their own bottom line.”
Frank Scott-Lennon – HR Director PCH International China Solutions
“Many thanks to John and his team on the excellent, up beat and interesting presentation made to our colleagues. The feedback from all who attended has been very positive and John really “struck a chord” with colleagues on the key points to assess when considering personal finance matters. Also, the materials John and his team presented were succinct, relevant and very professional. All in all it has been a very worthwhile process”.
Niall Eyre – HR Director Pfizer Healthcare Ireland
