Free support for you and your staff

As the cost-of-living continues to rise, it’s not surprising that almost half of employers now have a financial wellbeing policy in place to support their staff. Rising costs may not only affect your staff in their daily lives, but also your business.

Step2Skills offer Hertfordshire employers free short workshops to help staff navigate the increasing cost-of-living by gaining key budgeting skills.

Our workshops are offered as part of the government-funded Multiply program to improve people’s number skills. They are free to you, free to your staff, and free up headspace so that your workforce can worry a little less about money and focus more on the job in hand.
