Newsletter #21 – March 2024

Welcome to the Evolve Workplace Wellbeing Newsletter – March 2024

Working on better understanding Financial Wellbeing

Our colleague, Dr Bryony Davies, is working on a Knowledge Exchange Partnership project between RBC Brewin Dolphin and the University of East Anglia. Co-funded by Innovate UK, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships allow in-depth projects which draw on the best of industry expertise and academic research to take forward innovation in areas of societal need.

Bryony is looking for research participants. Please consider taking part:

“We all have experience with money – we might pay the bills, contribute to a pension, or save for the future. However, our experiences of learning how to do this effectively differ greatly. We are running interviews to explore the range of views and experiences held by working adults in the UK and would love to hear from you.
