The article examines whether human resources (HR) should play a more active role in financially educating staff. Sonia Wolsey-Cooper of Axa is a strong believer in financial education at work and has encouraged staff to set aside time to deal with their financial affairs during working hours. But calling a crisis meeting to discuss shrinking pension funds might not be enough if employers are not in the habit of communicating effectively, according to Colin Williams of Fidelity International.
