Here at Barnett Waddingham we believe that there are six pillars of employee wellbeing that impact how an employee performs in their role. Our holistic approach to wellbeing builds on the ancient Greek philosophy of Eudaimonia; supported by our modern six pillars ideology:
“Eudaimonia; a person's state of happiness and wellbeing, often described as 'human flourishing'”Aristotle
By implementing a successful wellbeing strategy which addresses the needs of the workforce across each of the six pillars, this can have significant benefits to the employer, some of which include:
HR leaders understand the importance of employee wellbeing but how do they get the rest of their organisation to agree and move it up the list of priorities?
An employer will make a very generous contribution of 10% to a pension, but only if the employee makes a contribution of 6%. However, some employees are unable to make the 6%.
The DC pension formula (growth stage) is pivoted on the trinity of how long you put money in to it, how much you put in to it and net investment return.
New regulations and accompanying statutory guidance compel trustees to produce detailed analyses of the costs and charges incurred by scheme members on their money purchase benefits.
Whether you are a trustee running an occupational scheme, a company offering a master trust scheme or a contract-based scheme, these newsletters help to keep you up to date with elements relevant to your DC arrangement.

Barnett Waddingham’s recent combined research, of UK employers and employees, revealed a significant and increasing gap between the employment experience of being employed and what the employers believe this experience to be.
Presenteeism at work has tripled since 2010. Where's your head at? We've interviewed 3,000 UK workers to understand health and wellbeing in the workplace.
Wellbeing is high on the agenda for businesses in the UK – but half of employers don’t feel like they are dealing with mental health effectively.
Barnett Waddingham named ‘highly commended’ in the ‘DC Consultancy of the Year’ category at the UKPA awards in what was a very competitive field.
Workers on lower salaries feel less comfortable talking to their employer about mental health, according to our Why BWell report. Just two in five of those earning £20,000 - £30,000 a year said they would be happy talking about mental health at work.
We are delighted to be recognised for the third consecutive year at Pension Insight’s DC Awards, being named ‘Financial Wellbeing Consultancy of the Year’.
