You can see the final session in our wellness webinar series, which took place on Wednesday (22nd July) when Fórsa official and pensions guru Billy Hannigan spoke with financial expert Trevor Gardiner about managing money in these uncertain times. Trevor outlined some simple ways to save money and plan for the future, and offered some free support services to Fórsa members in financial difficulty.
The series was brought to you in association with Cornmarket, which administer two of the Union’s salary protection schemes, featured experts on a range of topics from managing anxiety to motivation at work and home. The earlier sessions are now available as podcasts, and you can listen back HERE.
The series was informed by recent survey which found that 80% of Fórsa members experienced anxiety during the Covid-19 crisis. Half of the respondents said mental health and lack of motivation were their top concerns, with a huge proportion having trouble sleeping. A quarter of the respondents placed money concerns at the top of their list of worries.
The results reflect the stress of a period when thousands of Fórsa members have stepped-up to serve in high-risk frontline environments, with many more having to rapidly adjust to remote working.
