The high standard of financial education programmes led to a place at the ceremony organised by national publication Employee Benefit magazine. “We were really pleased to be recognised in this way for the work we are doing for iPSL employees,” says HR Manager Rebecca Noad, who attended the event in London along with People Development Manager Katrina Flunder. “Putting around 1,700 employees through financial education programmes, What About Me? and Leading People Through Change, has been a massive investment of time and money by the company but has proved so incredibly worthwhile,” adds Rebecca. “We are facing dramatic changes in the business and we are committed to preparing people in the best way possible for that change. “We have focussed on providing a wide range of information and support for everyone in every age range. “We have received fantastic feedback and it has been great to see people putting into practice what they have learnt.” iPSL was up against five other shortlisted companies for the Best Financial Education award. It was won by Lincoln University, which also went on to win the overall top prize, beating winners from the 24 other categories. Wealth@Work, the company which is delivering the training for iPSL, made the nomination and has also put the company forward for recognition in the Very Important Benefits Awards.
