Money is on everyone’s lips: a few of us are swimming in it and lavishly spending it, some of us are doing crazy things for it, and most of us just want more of it – often at a great cost. Regardless of who you are, where you come from or what you do, money clearly matters.
When money starts affecting work productivity
As a team leader, HR manager, CEO or head of an NPO, you’ll know that money problems impact how people show up at work. Whether it’s struggles to make ends meet on their current income, not being able to save for an emergency, being over-indebted, or difficulties making sound financial decisions, people are going through various financial struggles.
Sometimes this directly affects their work, for example, when someone doesn’t have enough transport money to get to work, or has a family emergency that suddenly takes them from work. Sometimes it indirectly affects their work: getting constant calls from creditors or loan sharks can cause people to be disengaged or distracted.
