Financial Wellbeing

Financial wellbeing goes beyond just your salary, it’s about managing your money to help achieve your goals and to reduce stress. Below are some resources to help you navigate various aspects of financial wellbeing.

Wagestream

Wagestream has been launched for Iris Care Group in 2024. This will provide personal and confidential financial coaching and allow staff to access a portion of their salary earlier in the month of necessary. Everyone deserves to feel financially resilient, empowered and secure. That’s why we want to give our staff more flexible pay options that give them the power to shape their pay cycles around their lives.

If you want to sign up reach out to your manager!

What else does Wagestream offer?

  • Track – a simple way of checking your shifts and what you can expect to be paid each month to make financial planning easier.
  • Build – A savings facility that lets you put aside some of your salary each month. Wagestream then adds an extra 5% boost on the money you set aside, so this could be an easy alternative to a Building Society.
  • Benefits Checker – this will quickly work out whether you are receiving all the benefits you might be entitled to. 76% of people who have used Wagestream’s benefit checker have discovered they were not receiving the full government benefits and support they are entitled to.
