Emergency Savings Summit (London)

Wednesday, May 25, 2022

In May, ESI partner Nest Insight hosted a summit dedicated to workplace emergency saving, with insights from its research programs and brought together employers, academics, industry and policymakers to discuss and debate:

  • What works in encouraging participation from employees?
  • What barriers to implementing workplace emergency savings programs exist for employers,                 and providers? And how could these be surmounted?
  • What are the measures of success for emergency savings schemes, beyond take-up?
  • What can we learn from international examples?
